Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon

Salmon doesn’t have to be dry. It really doesn’t! This salmon is literally (my favorite word LOL) melt in your mouth.

Contrasting salty and slightly sweet flavors from soy and maple syrup create the perfect flavor profile to compliment a warm, buttery piece of perfectly cooked salmon. The brininess of mustard cuts the richness of salmon while freshly chopped thyme adds a brightness.
