[Recipe] Orange Maple Salmon

[Recipe] Orange Maple Salmon

Now that it’s been a little over a week since the wedding, we’re starting to get back to our normal routines. One of the things we’re trying to get back to doing is making food at home. It’s SO easy to just go out or order in…not only does that get expensive, but excessive! I feel like I just keep eating when we’re out…so many things I want to try! 🙂

Anyway, getting back to cooking at home is easier when you have food to cook. We’ve been running around with the wedding, then our mini moon to Cape May then work…there’s really no time to head to the store. Luckily, we have Blue Apron!

This week, they sent a recipe for Maple & Ginger Glazed Salmon with Watercress, Orange, Parsnip Salad and it was SO delicious! I think the salmon is great for any day – so I wanted to share!
