Salmon with spicy maple sauce. The strong flavor of the ginger –garlic simmered with the maple syrup will linger in the kitchen.
Another wonderful flavor coming out of the kitchen was the side dish of cherry tomatoes. The sweet tender tomatoes roasted in the oven give out a wonderfully soft and rich flavor. Therefore a perfect side dish to any poultry, fish or meats. Perfect for any occasions.
While the tomatoes were roasting I decided to pair it with a Parmesan Couscous from Near East.
The combination was great. Another great fish to use with this recipe is sea bass and swordfish. The tender fish meat will take on the spiciness well and enhance it.
Steamed broccolis are a must on our house lately.
