Salmon with Maple, Mustard and Dill

Today, I thought I would share a sweet and savory salmon recipe.  YUM!

Fresh dill and lemon add color but more importantly a lovely flavor. For some garlic flavor, sliced garlic scapes added a finishing touch.  Garlic scapes have not officially been tested for FODMAP content but they are well tolerated by my clients and since other greens in this family are low FODMAP such as leek greens and spring onion greens…you might want to give try them.  If not, feel free to use the green part of scallions (spring onion), instead!lemons_dill

First combine maple syrup, mustard, paprika, pepper, salt and pepper to create a tasty glaze to drizzle over the salmon.syrup

This salmon dish bakes quickly in the oven for a nourishing and tasty evening meal.  We enjoyed the salmon with a kale salad dressed with lemon, garlic-infused olive oil, Parmesan cheese, sea salt and freshly ground pepper.salmon
