salmon:

2 Tablespoons maple syrup

2 Tablespoons Dijon-style mustard

1 Tablespoon poultry seasoning

2 garlic cloves, minced

4  sockeye salmon fillets (6 oz. each), fresh, frozen or thawed

 

DIRECTIONS

vegetables: 

Preheat oven to 450°F.  Place cut vegetables in a large zip-top bag; add oil, salt, garlic powder and pepper.  Seal bag; turn bag over several times to coat.  Spread vegetables evenly onto a large baking sheet.  Roast in oven for 15 minutes.

salmon: 

While vegetables are roasting, whisk olive oil, maple syrup, mustard, poultry seasoning and garlic in a small bowl. 

If using frozen Alaska salmon, rinse fillets under cold running water to remove any ice glaze.  Pat dry with paper towels.  Coat salmon with mustard-maple mixture.

Remove baking sheet from oven; turn vegetables over with spatula, then move vegetables closer together, making room to add salmon.

Place fillets on sheet; return to oven.  Cook additional 15 minutes for frozen salmon or 10 to 12 minutes for fresh/thawed, just until salmon is opaque throughout.

To serve, portion one-fourth of the vegetables with a salmon fillet.
