Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon

OH OH OH Eating Healthy really can be EASY and oh so tasty!!

Maple-mustard Glazed Salmon

Full of omega-3 fatty acids and heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, salmon’s natural, velvety texture is accentuated by the maple and mustard glaze.
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 4 salmon filets, skinned, 4 oz./115 g each
  • 1½ cups carrots, sliced
  • ¾ cup snow peas, trimmed
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp. whole-grain or Dijon mustard
  • ¼ tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil

Sprinkle half the salt and pepper over the salmon filets and place them in the Steamer Base. 
Place carrots in the Colander Tray and place the snow peas on top of the carrots. 
Fill Water Tray with 1¾ cups/400 mL water. Place Steamer Base on top of Water Tray and Colander Tray over Steamer Base. 
Cover and microwave on high power for 8 minutes or until salmon is opaque in the center and reaches a temperature of 145°F/63°C. 
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, mustard and thyme. Set aside. When cooking is complete, drizzle olive oil over vegetables, sprinkle remaining salt and pepper over them and stir to combine. Drizzle salmon with maple-mustard glaze and serve with vegetables.
