Maple and Mustard Glazed Baked Salmon

Dijon mustard with maple syrup isn’t the most obvious flavor combination, but drizzled over baked salmon fillets and topped off with some fresh greens, it totally works. Jonny isn’t a huge fan of fish, but he really enjoyed the distinct sweetness of the maple syrup with the bite of the grainy mustard. Salmon is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega-3 fatty acids that receives the most attention.Omega-3 fatty acids contribute to healthy brain function, heart function, joints and general well being.
