Delicious Low Syn Maple Glazed Salmon - simple ingredients, amazing taste.
You really do not need packet sauces/jars to make foods interesting, it's so easy to make your own syn free or low syn sauces. This Maple glazed salmon is only 2 syns per serving and is so easy to make with a few simple ingredients.
I like to use wild caught salmon for this Maple Glazed Salmon, where possible, it tastes so much better than farmed and you will noticed a huge difference in colour too. Farmed tends to be a dull pink colour.
I like to serve this with steamed brown rice and roasted broccoli and carrots. But for a side if you are paleo or on a SP/Original day, this Roasted Cauliflower Rice would be perfect.

Excuse me for sounding so stoopid, but can you steam rice in a bog standard plug in steamer? xx
I have no idea to be honest, I suppose you could try. I do mine in a bamboo steamer, but have part cooked rice in water before, and then let it cook the remainder of the time in a sieve over water with the lid on.

I’d like to try this recipe but my husband doesn’t like mustard can I leave it out or can you suggest a replacement ingredient?
Thank you for all your fab recipes, I’ve tried quite a few and we’ve all loved them!

the mustard does add flavour, so you may want to use some seasoning in its place. Paprika, cayenne, chilli etc are all good seasoning choices.
Lisa Kendall says
When you roast the carrots and broccoli do you just spray with fry light and season or do you add something else?
Siobhan (Slimming Eats) says
spray with spray oil of choice and season with salt and black pepper.
Love your recipes. This is a family fav now. Delicious and super quick and easy to prepare. We have it with stir fry veg sometimes, and rice other times.
