Salmon Filllet Portions (2 portions)
Pinch of pepper
Pinch of smoked paprika
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
Preheat the oven to 450°F. While preheating, prepare the sauce: Combine the maple syrup, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper.
Prepare the baking sheet by lining it with aluminum foil, and applying a coat of olive oil or cooking spray. Put the fillets on the baking sheet and brush with the mustard mixture, making sure it is coated evenly on all sides. Put in the oven to roast for 8 to 12 minutes.
Depending on the thickness of the salmon, this process can increment by 1 to 2 minutes. If less than an inch thick, start checking for doneness after 6 minutes. Cooked fish flakes easily apart with a fork, uncooked fish has a translucent color and spongy texture. If still uncooked, keep checking every 1 minute.
Serve in a nice serving dish with some green beans and herbed rice for a nice complete meal.
