My husband Marc absolutely loves any kind of seafood. So he is always happy on Fridays during the Lent season because it means we feast on fish! This weekend the salmon was looking particularly good at our market. Particularly good also meant that it was on sale, ha! In all seriousness, I was really careful at my fish counter. I made sure to look at the color. I also smelled the salmon to make sure it smelled like the sea instead of fishy. A strong fishy smell would have meant that it wasn’t that fresh. I also made sure to get it the day I made it. After all of that, I got it home and set about preparing the most incredible and easy maple bourbon broiled salmon!
When they were done, I served the fillets with quinoa and a side salad of baby spinach dressed with vinaigrette. I started the quinoa before the salmon and I had the whole meal on the table in 15 minutes! It was such a flavorful, simple meal with my husband and I loved it. This maple bourbon broiled salmon was a fast, weeknight wonder! Enjoy, friends. xoxo
