So Skipper and I were walking thru the market, and we saw boxes of natural maple water - for $3.50 each. I know he was thinking about the grove of maple trees we have in the back yard, and wondering just how much effort would go into tapping those beautiful trees for some maple water - but that would just be crazy. Or would it? We pondered how trendy maple water has become - and agreed that we much prefer the harvested maple water boiled and reduced into delicious maple syrup, which is perfect for baking and cooking.
Have I mentioned how much we love salmon? I thought so! This flavorful salmon dish is so fast and easy to make. From start to finish, I had dinner on the table in 25 minutes - 5 minutes of prep, 10 minutes baking time for the salmon, and 10 minutes for roasting the fresh vegies.
With our large family, I usually buy fresh halves of salmon at Costco, and slice into individual pieces after cooking to serve - everyone gets exactly the size they want! You can double the glaze ingredients if you are preparing a half salmon filet.
The delectable sauce is a flavorful maple syrup (the real stuff - not pancake syrup!) and Dijon glaze. Truth be told, I usually make extra sauce to glaze over my oven roasted vegetables as well.
Tonight I roasted some fresh whole green beans with garlic and carrot matchsticks, and drizzled the Maple Dijon glaze over the top just before serving. So good - there wasn't a fork (or spoonful) left!
