Salmon can be prepared in many ways because it works well with a number of flavor profiles. The thick, sweet fish contains omega-3 fatty acids—good fat, unlike the unhealthy saturated fat in most meat. Simple ingredients and preparation can result in great entrees. Here, Himalayan salt and pure maple syrup do the trick.
- 1 pound salmon
- 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup, all natural, 100 percent real, Grade B recommended
Cut the salmon into four equal parts and place each piece about 1 inch apart on a foil-lined baking tray.
Sprinkle each piece evenly with salt and pepper. Gently rub in the seasoning.
Pour the maple syrup evenly over the fish, and then gently spread it to cover the top of each fillet.
Broil for about 7-10 minutes, until the top starts to become golden. Remove and serve hot.
