My husband and I have been trying to eat a little healthier, which for us, includes incorporating fish at least twice a week into our meals. This was easy to prepare, and was very moist and delicious - in fact, Rolf said it was my best salmon yet. I will definitely make this again!
SALMON WITH MAPLE SYRUP AND TOASTED ALMONDS
6 (6 ounce) salmon fillets
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 teaspoons sliced almonds, toasted
Heat oven to 425F.
Place fillets in a 13 by 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Combine sugar, syrup, soy sauce, mustard, and black pepper. Pour maple syrup mixture over fillets.
Cover with foil, bake for 10 minutes. Remove foil, sprinkle the fillets with almonds. Bake an additional 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with maple syrup mixture.
