A fast weeknight meal that comes with no guilt, tastes damn good, and leaves you feeling like you’ve done something good for yourself.

Salmon and Brussels sprouts in a skillet. This is going to be good!

Maybe it’s time to rush through dinner. Something quick and easy that doesn’t set off 99 guilt alarms. Something that doesn’t involve a drive-through on the way home. Something that makes you check off that healthy meal check box. This is what you are looking for. A fast weeknight meal that comes with no guilt, tastes damn good, and leaves you feeling like you’ve done something good for yourself (and let’s be honest, you have). Grab some salmon and maple syrup on the way home. Get some Brussels sprouts while you’re at it. There’s something totally rewarding about coming home, zoning out, and preparing dinner for the family, even on the craziest weeknights.

Feed them. Feed them good.

    1. Hi Ellen,

      I roast my brussels sprouts on a sheet pan in the oven for 25 minutes, with a little EVOO, Salt and pepper. Then I tossed them with any reserve sauce that was left from the maple mix for the salmon. Love me some roasted brussels!

  1. This is so incredibly simple, but I can imagine between the maple, soy sauce, and mustard, it has kick-ass flavor!

  2. Feed them real good! This is exactly the kind of quick and delicious meal I love. Adding it to my menu for next week!

  3. Love everything about this recipe, the easiness of the salmon and the brussels sprouts! YUM Pinned!
