Maple and Mustard Baked Salmon
I went shopping today and the salmon was on sale so I bought a big piece. I was planning on baking it as one piece with butter but I bought a new baking dish and it was too big!
You can even marinade the salmon the night before if you wish, and you’ll have a quick and easy week night meal that will please your whole family.
Just combine 1/3 cup of pure maple syrup and 1/3 cup of grey Poupon coarse grain mustard.
Then remove most of the marinade and cook in a 400 degree oven for about 15- 20 minutes until cooked through.
The dish is just delicious. Just the right touch of sweet and tangy and perfect for a light summer main meal. I served it with mushroom stuffed ravioli and a small salad.
