Whilst my husband would eat salmon ‘any which way’ I do have to admit that I prefer it with a flavoursome rub or topping.
I had a day recently with nothing planned for dinner, but I knew I had some leftover salsa and coleslaw in the fridge, and some coconut rice in the freezer and decided this would go beautifully with some salmon which I also keep a good stock of frozen as we try to eat fish at least twice a week.
I took some salmon fillets out and chose to make a maple syrup and mustard ‘rub’.
Two teaspoons of Dijon mustard mixed with two tablespoons of maple syrup in a saucepan and simmered gently for a couple of minutes produces a nice thick sauce.
Brush the salmon fillets with the sauce before baking.
Bake the salmon uncovered at 350°F for fifteen to twenty minutes until just cooked. All ovens vary, so watch the salmon carefully.
I served my salmon with some coconut rice, leftover Colourful Coleslaw and Fruit Salsa. I couldn’t have asked for a more delicious combination of flavours or colours.
