I LOVE salmon! The hubs loves salmon as well, which is a win-win if we both love it. The only problem I have with it is it’s pretty darn expensive these days but we try to eat it twice a month. It’s so good for you and makes an easy weeknight dinner. My absolute favorite recipe is this Maple Glazed Salmon recipe. I love maple anything but this is a knock outta the park!
-1 teaspoon paprika
-1/2 teaspoon chili powder
-1/2 teaspoon ground ancho chile powder
-1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
-1 teaspoon salt
-2 salmon filets (or more depending on size of family, just adjust the seasonings)
-2 Tablespoons pure maple syrup (the real stuff!)
-Preheat oven to 420 degrees (or BBQ the salmon, that’s fine as well). **I like my salmon more on the done side so adjust the temperature and time depending on how you like yours cooked.
-Combine the first 5 ingredients and spread evenly over 2 salmon filets (remember: mix up extra spices if you are making more than 2 salmon filets).
-Bake salmon for 20 minutes, or until desired degree of doneness (or BBQ).
-Once cooked for 20 minutes, take out of oven (or off of BBQ) and pour 1 Tablespoon of pure maple syrup on each salmon filet. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Enjoy!
There you have it! Serve with my “Roasted Veggies” recipe and you’re all set for a healthy weeknight dinner. Even better, and if they fit, bake both alongside each other in the oven and you have it all done at the same time. Mmmmm, I might have to put this on my menu board for the week, so good! Oh and don’t forget the most important part…pour yourself a nice glass of white wine to wash it down! 🙂
I hope you all enjoy it!
