Smoky Mustard-Maple Salmon
Makes: 4 Servings
Total Cost: $$$$
It doesn’t get much easier — or more delicious — than this ultra-fast salmon. The sweetness of the maple balances the tangy mustard; smoked paprika or ground chipotle adds another layer of flavor. When you buy your salmon, ask at the fish counter to have the salmon cut into four 4-ounce fillets with the skin removed.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika or ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 4-oz skinless, center-cut, wild-caught salmon fillets

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray.
  3. Combine mustard, maple syrup, paprika (or chipotle), pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
  4. Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Spread the mustard mixture evenly on the salmon.
  6. Roast until just cooked through (approx. 8-12 minutes).

Notes

Quick Tips:
- Smoked paprika is made from smoke-dried, red peppers and adds earthy, smoky flavor. It can be used in many types of savory dishes. Look for different types of paprika at large supermarkets or online.
- Wild-caught salmon from the Pacific (Alaska and Washington) are more sustainably fished and have a larger, more stable population.
