Maple-Glazed Salmon with Roasted Brussels Sprouts
1 lb Brussels sprouts, trimmed and halved
1 large red onion, cut into 1-inch wedges, stem ends left intact
2 tablespoons grapeseed oil
Sea salt and black pepper
2 tablespoons raw honey or pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons whole-grain or Dijon mustard
1.5 lbs. skinless, wild-caught salmon fillet, cut into 4 pieces
Heat oven to 450 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds.
On a rimmed baking sheet, toss the Brussels sprouts and onion with the oil, ½ teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
Roast on the bottom rack, tossing once, until golden and tender, 15-20 minutes.
In a small bowl, mix together the maple syrup (or honey), mustard and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
After the vegetables have cooked for 12 minutes, place the salmon on a second rimmed baking sheet and brush with the maple mixture.
Roast on the top rack until opaque throughout, 6-8 minutes.
