Maple & Mustard Roasted Salmon

We try to eat Salmon at least once a week. What I like about salmon is that it usually takes less than 10 minutes to bake in the oven. This Maple and Mustard Roasted Salmon does require about 4 hours to marinate but only 8 minutes to bake.

Raw Salmon will last 1-2 days in the refrigerator and 6-8 months in the freezer. Cooked Salmon will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator and 2-6 months in the freezer.

It’s important to note that your salmon fillets need to be unthawed before marinating them. If you buy your salmon already frozen, follow the directions on the package for the proper way to unthaw your salmon.

It usually involves unthawing in the fridge or in a bowl of water. Unthawing time will vary based on the weight of the salmon fillet.
