Maple Glazed Salmon

You will notice a few changes to my blog today. Some of you may have seen several different and sometimes weird changes as I worked with the template. More changes are planned as soon as I get a couple of changes to actually work as they should. Thanks for your patience during the construction.

Salmon is one of the most nutritious fish you can eat. It is rich in Omega-3 essential fatty acids and low in calories and saturated fats. Salmon is also a good source of niacin and vitamin B-12. We have salmon quite often not only for it's health benefits but because we find it very flavourful and easy to prepare.

In keeping with our weekend fish theme, Sunday's dinner was maple glazed salmon served with basmati rice and homecanned green beans. Wild rice or a wild rice mixture is also a perfect side dish for salmon prepared this way. Other side dishes like steamed potatoes go well with maple glased salmon.

The flavour of pure maple syrup melds nicely with wild salmon. Maple glazed salmon is quick and easy to make. Salmon fillets are a good choice for this dish.

Maple Glazed Salmon

2 5oz wild salmon fillets
1/2 c pure maple syrup
1 tsp dijon mustard
1/2 tsp fresh or dried parsley chopped

Pre-heat oven to 350ºF. Wisk maple syrup and mustard together. Pour half into a baking dish. Place salmon skin side down into the mixture. Pour the other half of the syrup mixture over the salmon. Bake until fish is firm when pushed in centre. Do not over bake. Remove from baking dish and garnish with parsley.
Serves 2
