Maple Walnut Salmon


Salmon close-up 2
I love salmon with a little hint of sweetness.  This recipe brings that perfect, delicate touch of sweet along with a big, fat, groin-punch of Omega-3s.  While the health benefits of this dish are awesome, I love it especially because I can cook it in the toaster oven in under 15 minutes flat and be left with very little clean up.  Win-win-win.

I know you’re wondering if something this easy and healthy can really be so delicious but trust me, it is.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

    Looks great! We just last night cooked salmon with home made teriyaki glaze. Just soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and chili flakes.
