Maple Glazed Salmon with Roasted Balsamic Strawberries

Maple Glazed Salmon with Roasted Balsamic Strawberries

  • 3/4 pound fresh or frozen strawberries, hulled and quartered
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon, cut into 6-ounce portions
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

Preheat the oven to 425.  Arrange the strawberries on a baking sheet and drizzle with the balsamic vinegar.

Place the salmon on a separate baking sheet.  In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, mustard, pepper and salt; brush over the salmon.

Roast for 10-12 minutes, until the juices are released from the strawberries and the salmon is cooked to medium doneness. (Frozen strawberries can be used instead of fresh; they will need to be roasted for about 20 minutes if still frozen.)

Spoon the berries over the salmon to serve.
