I’m trying to settle back into the routine of things at home after a little over a week in Israel. It’s going to take me a while to sum up the incredible experiences I had there, but I’ll preface it by saying that was truly a life changing experience. While I’m definitely sleep-deprived, my soul feels peaceful and happy. Over the next few weeks, my plan is to break down my trip by experience and through recipes I enjoyed while abroad.

In the meantime, I’ve got some tasty easy meals coming for you because I know how hectic the holiday season gets. After a long day at work and feeling the chill as the winter months approach, the last thing you want to do is cook. That’s why I’m determined to bring you easy 30 minute meals and snacks.

And Thanksgiving meals too. I’ve got those coming for you shortly! If you have any last minute requests, I’m all ears.

Now, let’s talk salmon!

If you haven’t made salmon before, then I suggest you try to incorporate it into your diet more. You might already know this, but it’s a wonderful source of healthy fats, omega-3, and protein. For the longest time, we didn’t eat salmon much, but ever since we made my blackened salmon tacos last year, I’ve been going crazy with easy salmon recipes. And I’ve noticed such a difference in the look and feel of my skin.

What I really love about salmon is that it feels like a fancy date night meal. In reality, salmon takes about 20 minutes to bake, and can be seasoned or marinated in whatever your heart desires. This spicy maple salmon is FABULOUS because it is both sweet and a little bit spicy. There’s also a little tang from dijon mustard and soy, which helps bring all of the flavors together beautifully.

This recipe serves two, but you could double it if you’d like. I love serving it with my brussels sprouts and kale salad, but homemade sweet potato fries would also be delish.

Hope you guys love this easy Maple Glazed Salmon. xo!

I recommend serving with any of the following:

Sesame Roasted Asparagus

Kale and Butternut Squash Salad

Shredded Brussels Sprouts and Kale Salad

Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Spicy Glazed Maple Salmon for two makes the perfect weeknight dinner. All you need is 20 minutes to make this healthy meal. Serve with sweet potato fries and veggies, or a lovely kale and brussels sprouts salad!

Ingredients

  • 2 - 6 oz wild salmon filets (12 oz total)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper to prevent the glaze from burning. Place salmon filets 2 inches apart on parchment paper.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, dijon mustard, chili powder, cayenne pepper and garlic. Pour or generously brush the glaze over the salmon, reserving 2 tablespoons for glazing once salmon is done. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until salmon is done and flakes with a fork. For every inch of salmon filet thickness, you’ll need to bake for 15 minutes. Usually 18 minutes is perfect for me.
  3. Once salmon is done baking, remove from oven and pour remaining glaze on top. Enjoy! Serves 2.
