Glaze: Place the vinegar, sugar and honey into a small sauce pot and bring to a simmer on a medium heat stirring until sugar and honey have dissolved. Continuing simmering for 3 to 5 minutes on medium low heat until the liquid has reached the consistency of pancake syrup. Store at room temperature.

Orzo: While the fish is cooking heat the olive oil, orzo, roasted peppers and fresh spinach in a saute pan until warm. Finish the mixture with Parmesan cheese.
To Serve: Place this mixture next to the salmon. Drizzle with balsamic glaze on top and around the sides of the salmon. Garnish the dish with a lemon wedge quarter.
