Ginger Maple Glazed Salmon (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Low-Carb)

Print

For as long as I can remember, my mum has been trying to get me to eat fish. At the ripe age of 25, I still hate it! But as I learnt more about the incredible benefits of salmon and the omega-3 it contains, I knew I wanted to get it into my diet somehow.

All I had to do was figure out how to make this piece of fish not taste at all like, well, fish! 

I couldn’t believe how much I actually loved this dish and how little it tastes like fish! The maple syrup adds a lovely glaze and the ginger adds a gentle kick. I served it with a coconut infused wild rice.

All together it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and 15- 20 minutes cooking time. This recipe is for one so increase accordingly.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This deliciously light yet satisfying salmon recipe is sure to become a weekly go-to! With 16g of protein and only only 2g of saturated fat, you can enjoy this dish guilt free while patting yourself on the back for getting your Omega 3s...and Omega 3s are just the beginning! Salmon is a great source of B vitamins and potassium, both of which help to keep the body's various systems balanced and running smoothly.
