Maple-Glazed Salmon

Despite providing you recipes, I’m a mess in the kitchen. I don’t like complicated, and complicated doesn’t like me.

But salmon? I’m a champ at cooking salmon.

You seriously can’t get any easier than this. Pick up a fresh salmon fillet (I get mine at Costco for anywhere from $13-15), brush it with maple syrup, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stick it under the broiler for about 8 minutes, maybe more, and you’re done. EASY.

Serve it with sweet potatoes and a green veggie and you’re all set! Salmon is a great source of Omega 3’s, and when paired with sweet potatoes and vegetables, it makes for a completely balanced meal.
