This Easy Maple Baked Salmon recipe has only a few super simple ingredients. Quick to assemble, and easy to make in a hurry
You know those recipes that sound too easy to actually be any good?
That’s this one: Easy Maple Baked Salmon.
It’s a meal you can toss in the oven at the last minute, and thanks to salmon’s ability to bake in a hurry, you won’t be waiting long to eat.
The marinade for the sauce is incredibly easy to prepare. If you have time to let the salmon soak it up, do so. Marinate for a few hours, or even over night. That been said, if it’s 5:30 and you are cooking right now, don’t panic, it will still work out.
I need to apologize. If you came here looking for super pretty pictures, I don’t have those this time around.
Here’s the scoop. There’s a limited edition mustard available in Canada at the moment, that I know is going to go so well with this recipe.
The problem is, by the time I make this recipe again, there’s a good chance this Otoberfest limited edition mustard will be completely sold out… and then we’ve all missed out on good mustard and a good recipe to use it with.
So bear with me. Excuse the ugly graphics, and try this recipe for yourself. if you happen to snap a photo prettier than what I’ve come up with, please help a girl out.
In the meantime, here’s the recipe for Easy Maple Baked Salmon. Enjoy!
