For as long as I can remember, my mum has been trying to get me to eat fish. At the ripe age of 25, I still hate it! But as I learnt more about the incredible benefits of salmon and the omega-3 it contains, I knew I wanted to get it into my diet somehow.
All I had to do was figure out how to make this piece of fish not taste at all like, well, fish!
I couldn’t believe how much I actually loved this dish and how little it tastes like fish! The maple syrup adds a lovely glaze and the ginger adds a gentle kick. I served it with a coconut infused wild rice.
All together it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and 15- 20 minutes cooking time. This recipe is for one so increase accordingly.

Method – Ginger Maple Glazed Salmon – Salmon Recipe for People Who Don’t Like Fish
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray or dish with parchment paper.
Finely chop the garlic and ginger.
In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients (apart from the salmon).
Place the salmon fillet onto the baking tray.
Using a teaspoon, pour the sauce over the salmon, don’t worry if it drips down the sides.
Place in the middle of the oven and cook for 15-20 mins or until a light golden glaze forms on the surface.
Remove from the oven and enjoy immediately.
I enjoy having this salmon with boiled wild rice, edamam and broccoli with a teaspoon of coconut oil stirred in.
