Salmon Filllet Portions (2 portions)
Pinch of pepper
Pink of smoked paprika
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
Pan frying salmon is the easy way you can make this recipe, but if you prefer less oil, you can opt to bake it instead, which is my preferred version.
For Baking, preheat the oven to 450°F. While preheating, prepare the sauce: Combine the maple syrup, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Prepare the baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil, and applying a coat of olive oil or cooking spray. Put the fillets on the baking sheet and brush with the mustard mixture, making sure it is coated evenly on all sides. Put the oven to roast for 8 to 12 minutes.
Depending on the thickness of the salmon, this process can increment by 1 to 2 minutes. If less than an inch thick, start checking for doneness after 6 minutes. You can check this by carefully poking through the fillet with a fork to see if it flakes apart. Uncooked fish has a translucent color and spongy texture. If still uncooked, keep checking every 1 minute.
Serve in a nice serving dish green some beans and herbed rice for a nice complete meal.
