Enjoy a restaurant-quality salmon dish at home with our Glazed Salmon with Seasonal Vegetables. Rich in omega-3’s, salmon is an excellent staple to incorporate into our weekly meal planning. And you don’t have to douse your filet in fatty beurre blancs or sugary glazes to get the flavor you crave. A little honey adds sweetness, and ginger and jalapeño spice up your meal! You can use yellow squash and asparagus when they’re in season, or feel free to get creative and use winter vegetables when they’re fresh.
