Dinner tonight: braised kale and mashed potatoes!
I treated us with glazed salmon and crispy caramelized onions to go with our kale and potatoes. I love salmon with only salt and pepper, but I was craving intense flavor and this glaze is amazing.
2 tablespoons maple syrup (or brown sugar)
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon finely grated ginger (we were out of ginger because Nick had just made an incredible ginger beet syrup so I just used a tablespoon of that)
Melt the syrup, honey and butter in a small saute pan over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and whisk in the mustard, soy sauce, olive oil and ginger. Let cool.
Heat the oven to 400 F
Drizzle and brush your salmon with the glaze (you could probably even marinate the fish if you wanted to). Roast until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes.
