I seriously, cannot even describe to you how amazing this weekend was! Do you know what the best part about it was? We basically did absolutely nothing!

I have been traveling on and off every other week for the past two months and to be able to just sit at home and not have any “to do’s” was incredible! We went out to dinner with my brother and his wife Friday night at one of our favorite places, sat outside, drank margaritas, and laughed! Saturday we woke up late (well to us 8:15am is late), just sat around, and then decided … let’s paint the office.. so all three of us piled into Mike’s car and went to the store to buy paint.

Truth be told, painting is something I love to do but don’t do nearly enough. It makes me happy to see a finished product and in the process I find it relaxing. (or maybe its just the fumes getting to me)

We finished off the day with some wine and Creamy Lemon Chicken Pasta that had sun dried tomatoes in it, which is actually going to be featured on Julie’s Eats & Treats blog next week (i’m a contributor over there).

I had been looking forward to this weekend for a while. Nothing special was planned but I think that was what I was looking forward too. I am a home body by nature and I definitely recharge by being alone for a little bit and this weekend was exactly what I needed.

How do you recharge yourself? Do you recharge when you’re with a group of people or at home reading a good book with a glass of wine?

Ok, change of subject! I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but over the past couple of weeks there are have been more seafood recipes on JHE. I’ve kinda fallen in love with the soft flaky texture of it and it feels lighter on my tummy then a big juicy steak. Although, sometimes a big juicy steak is needed. πŸ™‚

This Dijon Maple Glazed Salmon is one of the easiest recipes you will ever make, with only 3 ingredients! That’s right you heard me, THREE! Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and Salmon!

Can’t get much easier than that!

What I love about this Dijon Maple Glazed Salmon is the tangy sweet flavor from the glaze. When the Salmon is baked with the Dijon Maple mixture is starts to caramelize and crisp up on the outside of the Salmon because the sugars in the maple syrup start to react to the heat of the oven. It is absolutely incredible! Baking the fish as opposed to grilling it ensures consist heat so your fish will be cooked all the way through. As soon as I took the Salmon out of the oven and used a fork to test it the Salmon flaked away perfectly and the flavor is OMG good!

  1. I’m also the type of person who needs some alone time to recharge. So glad you were able to have such a fun and relaxing weekend! Mine was a good mix of family time, fun, and relaxation too. πŸ™‚

    I’m saving this recipe to try soon! I can never have too many easy 30 minute meals, and I love baked salmon! That dijon maple glaze looks sooo good!

  2. I thought I was the only one who liked to paint so much! We have been in our house 6 years and I have repainted every room at least 3 times! I have no idea why, I just enjoy the process. And I am loving this salmon, we try to do salmon once a week since it is so good for you but sometimes I need something new and different. This is just the ticket!

    1. haha… I go through phases.. this might be another paint phase! hehe not sure my husband is as thrilled about it as me!

      Glad you like this recipe girl, hope you and the fam enjoy it! Its delicious!

    1. Deb

      Has anyone actually made the dish… maybe, I missed it in the comments. Would like some actual feedback from those who’ve made it.

      1. elisa

        I’ve made the dish tonight and this is my first recipe trial from this site. But this thing is SUPER DELICIOUS! I’m not a big fan of maple syrup and I was a bit suspicious at the beginning but it just turned out to be a great dinner. And thanks so much Krista. Will follow your food!

    1. hahah… Love it girl! πŸ™‚ I totally think it would be great! We could go on hikes together, run, and then indulge on all the amazing food we make! Yippee!

  3. I find painting so relaxing too ( you’re right, it could possibly be the fumes πŸ™‚ ) There’s something about starting a project and seeing the results of your work. This salmon recipe sounds perfect. We eat salmon weekly and I love trying new ways to jazz it up. I’ll be giving your recipe a try, it sounds fantastic!

  4. Your weekend is exactly how I like to recharge. Nothing crazy but able to just rest and do what you want to do! We have had so many busy weekends lately, that we sorta did the same thing this past weekend! Totally refreshing!

    We definitely do not eat enough salmon around here and this maple glaze sounds right up my alley! So easy and perfect for a date night!

    1. Yeah for refreshing weekends! And girl, believe me, you will enjoy them even more when your little guy comes! πŸ™‚

      You know what, we don’t eat salmon very much, but I’m going to change that and this recipe was the first of many! hehe

    1. Thanks Laura! I think we all need a little “me time” here and now.

      You don’t like mustard!!! Thats just crazy talk! You’ll love this and it might just get you started on mustard! πŸ™‚ hehe

  5. Mariah @ Mariah's Pleasing Plates

    Laid back weekends are the best!! Glad you enjoyed yourself! Love this maple salmon. We are huge seafood lovers at our house! Pinned!

  6. Samantha Martinez

    What should I serve with this Dijon Maple Glazed Salmon? It looks so tasty, I’d hate to flatten the meal by serving it with some bland steamed rice. Any suggestions that would go well? Thanks!

  7. Cryssoula Dimaki

    Hello, I would like to ask you if I could substitute the maple syrup with honey or dark sugar? If yes, could you please tell me the exact quantity?
    Thank you in advance for your help!

  8. Aimee Chase

    Giving this try for my dinner, my husband isn’t feeling so confident. I’m going to wing it and lessen it down to what I think is appropriate for one person.. here’s to hoping! So excited..😍😍😍
