Maple Glazed Salmon with Roasted Okra


I was in the mood for something sweet but I also really wanted to try cooking a vegetable I had never cooked before. I decided to stick with a basic Maple Glazed Salmon dish with a side of Roasted Okra- a vegetable I know little about. The combination worked well together although I’m still unsure if I like okra or not. But for all you okra lovers out there I definitely recommend this.

Roasted Salmon with a Mustard Dill sauce

This is my favorite go-to meal. Incredibly quick and delicious.

Ingredients (serves 2)
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Bunch of chopped Dill

I start by rinsing off the salmon with water and leaving it to dry between paper towels. Oven at 450 degrees. I put tin foil on a baking sheet and put the salmon on the tin foil – skin side down. Place chopped dill on top of the fish. I don’t put anything else on the fish- no oil, nothing. Cook for 10-15 minutes- until fish is cooked through.


Mustard Dill Sauce: Use on side after everything is cooked
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
Chopped Dill (as much as you like) I put a lot, but I would start with less to see how much you prefer

I like it best with Roasted Brussel Sprouts (cut them in half. Toss them with olive oil, pepper and salt (a little)). Put them on the tin foil sheet and cook for 20min. Then brush them to the side of the sheet and put Salmon on the cooking sheet. Let the brussel sprouts cook for the 10-15min with the salmon.

I’ve also made it with Roasted Broccoli and Roasted Asparagus, but the Brussel sprouts have been the best so far.
