Maple and Mustard-Glazed Salmon with Roasted Brussels Sprouts
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons whole-grain mustard
4 salmon fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved through the root
1 large red onion, cut into wedges, stem ends left intact
2 tablespoons olive oil or melted coconut oil
Salt and pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving
Whisk together the maple syrup and mustard. Season both sides of the salmon fillets liberally with salt and pepper, then brush them with the maple-mustard mixture and set aside.
Meanwhile, heat the oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, toss the sprouts and onion with the oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper until well-coated. Spread them out on a baking sheet, cut side-down, and roast on the lower rack until caramelized and tender, 20-30 minutes.
When the sprouts are nearly done, arrange the fillets on an oven-proof dish and broil them, skin-side down, until the maple mixture is well-caramelized and the fish is just cooked through—7 to 10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillet.
Serve with the sprouts and lemon wedges.

I just received a parcel of games, books and puzzles I ordered from you online. It only took a few days to get here which is pretty amazing. I think I wait longer than that for things to be delivered within my own country! But I digress, I wanted to say thank you very much. My mother is now going through the box, I’ve not seen her so animated in a while. She’s in the later stages of Alzheimer’s/Dementia and spends a lot of her time just sitting around not doing much and I’ve found it extremely difficult to find things that are suitable to keep her occupied and engaged. So much of what she used to be able to do and enjoy is now beyond her and although she tries, it just creates frustration for her. This cache of goodies looks like it’s going to be the solution, thank you
