Maple Glazed Salmon (2)

Salmon is one of our favourite fish so we have it fairly often.  I was buying salmon steaks from M & M Meat Stores when it was on sale but NoFrills® is now carrying Highliner wild Pacific salmon fillets.  There are 4 fillets in a package for $5.97.  This is just enough fish for a dinner for two although most times we end up with one fillet leftover.

I previously posted a maple glazed salmon recipe.  I modified that recipe to make the glaze for this maple glaze by adding 3 tbsp of butter.  Butter has a wonderful, rich flavour that pairs nicely with fish.  Butter also adds moisture to fish when it is cooking so it just seemed appropriate adding butter to the original glaze.  I kept the baking temperature at 180ºC (350ºF) then baked with the glaze for 20 minutes uncovered.

The addition of the butter added both flavour and moisture so the fillets were quite tasty.  I served the salmon fillets with Basmati rice and home canned wax beans.  It was a simple yet tasty meal.

Hi Linda :) Check in the frozen food section at the grocery store. That's were I found the Highlander ones. Some grocery stores sell fresh wild salmon fillets too.
