Manic:  You want to eat healthy salmon, but don’t have the time or ingredients on hand to make it right.

Managed:  Found the easiest salmon recipe that only requires the salmon and two ingredients!

This recipe comes from a friend.  Two years ago I picked my son up from his buddy’s house and I was shocked to hear my then 11-year-old tell me how much he loved the salmon they served him for dinner.  Did I hear my boy right who wouldn’t dare try salmon for me because it was fish?! 

So, I had to know the secret recipe that made my kid a salmon lover.  The next weekend when I drove my son back to his friend’s house for another play date, I asked the family for the recipe.  I couldn’t believe how easy it is to prepare. 

Just three ingredients and presto, you have savory salmon.  Here it is for your family to try:

Simple Savory Salmon

You will need:

2 or 3 salmon steaks – I like to buy it wild

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup soy sauce

1.  Combine the maple syrup and soy sauce.  Marinate your salmon for as short as a few hours or overnight.  That is up to you.

2. Prepare the marinated salmon the way you like it.  My friend likes to cook it on the grill.  I like to sear it on the stove for four minutes on medium high in my cast iron skillet.  Then I cook it in a 400 degree oven for about five minutes or so. 

Sear face down in skillet.

3.  While your salmon is cooking, boil the left over marinade so it will become a sauce that you can pour over your finished salmon if you desire.

4.  For a really healthy meal, serve the salmon over brown rice.

That easy and that good!  Enjoy!
