Maple Mustard Salmon is the perfect combination of savory and sweet for a healthy, fast dinner that is on the table in under 20 minutes. All you need is some whole grain mustard, good quality maple syrup, and salmon. That's it for a delicious meal that your whole family will love.
Growing up in New England, I actually didn't eat a lot of salmon. Sometimes we would have it when we were out to dinner, but it was never something my Mom cooked at home since there was so much local fish available. Since moving to the West Coast, things have completely changed and I can't get enough salmon. I love the meaty texture and since it is packed with Omegas, it's something I feel good about eating.
While I usually throw my salmon on the grill, lately I have been roasting it in the oven since it is so quick and easy. And this maple mustard glaze is quickly moving up as one of my favorite preparations. The savoriness of the whole grain mustard paired with the sweet, earthiness of the maple syrup really works with salmon. Plus it's hard to beat a three ingredient meal!
