Description

This delicious dish can be made with any firm-fleshed fish, such as cod fillets. Another variation is to make salmon cakes and drizzle the sauce over the top; serve with pineapple on the side.

Ingredients

1/2 cup
maple syrup
2 tablespoons
dijon mustard
1 1/2 teaspoon
salt
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper
24 ounces
salmon
2 cups
pineapple
1  
jalapeño pepper

Instructions

Heat broiler. Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Place the salmon in a baking dish lined with foil. Season with the salt and pepper. Scatter the pineapple and jalapeño around the salmon. Brush the salmon with most of the syrup mixture, reserving a few spoonfuls.

Broil for 5-7 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily when pricked with a fork and the inside is the same color throughout.

Before serving, drizzle the salmon with the remaining glaze. Serve with rice, and a salad or vegetable side dish.
