Monday’s Bread Bowl: Maple Syrup-Glazed Salmon

A sweet seafood sensation

After a week of hearty pork selections, we’re feeling sluggish. Therefore, The Mixed Stew has opted to lighten up this week with salmon. Mix maple syrup with just a dash of cider vinegar and baste salmon filets with liquid blend. Season fish with a little sea salt and pepper then bake in preheated 450 degree oven for about 20 minutes for a tasty and healthy entrée. Simple ingredients combine for a sweet and savory main course. The syrup forms a sweet caramelized seal that locks in the salmon’s natural juices. Just make sure to spray the baking pan with cooking spray. If you want a little spice, add pepper flakes or a sprinkling of chili powder. The Mayo Clinic offers a recipe of its version of the dish here. Serve with fresh steamed green beans or corn -- whichever you prefer.
