The cover of the September 2010Cooking Light Magazine jumped out at me with its gorgeous photo of salmon just waiting to be eaten.  Salmon anything is usually a winner and my family loves salmon.  Super easy, of course, and healthy--at this point, who doesn't know that Omega-3 fatty acids are good for us?

The maple-glazed salmon was excellent--a bit of spice with the sweetness of maple syrup.  Everyone loved it.

I paired this with Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Dijon from Cooking Light's August issue.  But I didn't use Fingerling potatoes, I used Yukon Gold, and I substituted Rosemary for Parsley.  I also doubled the amount of Dijon mustard and next time will double it again.

And my go-to green vegetable as of late is a pretty medley of broccoli, red bell pepper, and garlic sauteed in a little garlic-infused olive oil.

Hope you give this delicious and healthy Sunday Supper a try.
