What do I like even better than a delicious piece of salmon? I’d have to say the easy prep and simple ingredients that go along with it. You see if you already have a gorgeous piece of fresh fish, there is not really much you need to do other than a few minor accents to showcase your dish. Here I mixed up a tangy and slightly sweet marinade consisting of pure maple syrup and two kinds of mustard. In addition, I added some green chives to brighten it up! The key here is searing the salmon and then baking it just a few minutes to get it done “just right!”
1 pound salmon fillets cut into bite-sized pieces. (Request the center cut of the fish; this will ensure an even cooking time.
2 tablespoons pure Maple Syrup (Maple syrup has the lowest calories of any natural sweetener so enjoy it…find it right in the syrup aisle.)
1 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon Stone Ground Mustard
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons chopped chives
