{Maple Dijon Glazed Roasted Salmon }

You guys, I miss grilling!  If there was a way I could grill year round in Minnesota and not freeze my butt off I totally would (though with the sudden warm weather again I might be able to grill outside right now)!  Salmon is one of my all time favorite things to grill, so since the weather is a not exactly grilling and chilling weather this Maple Dijon Roasted Salmon will just have to do! 

I love that this roasted salmon seems fancy (I would serve it for fish loving guests) but in reality its really super simple to whip up!  Another great thing about this dish... you only need a few pantry items to make it!  The maple syrup gives the salmon a nice sweetness while the soy sauce and dijon mustard give the dish a little pizzazz and tang.  Whip up some fresh roasted veggies and you have yourself a mouth watering meal in under 45 minutes!  Oh, and don't worry your house won't smell all fishy after you make this dish!  I promise!
