Roasted Salmon with Maple-Mustard Glaze
(Yield: 2-3 servings)
Print this recipe
¾ pound salmon filet
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 tablespoon prepared whole grain mustard
1 teaspoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon shoyu
2-3 lemon wedges for garnish
Minced parsley for garnish
- Preheat oven to 475°F
- Rinse the fish and pat dry. Lay skin side down on a parchment lined baking pan. (The parchment prevents the fish from sticking to the pan and greatly reduces cleanup time.)
- Cut a 1/2-inch deep crosshatch pattern in the salmon. Season lightly with pepper.
- Mix the mustard, maple syrup and shoyu together and smear over the fish. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10-15 minutes, until cooked to desired doneness on the inside. Remove the salmon from the oven and cover with foil or a plate for a few minutes to complete cooking. Cut the salmon into portions and serve with lemon and a sprinkling of parsley.
