Maple-Glazed Salmon with Cheddar Drizzle
4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon each salt and pepper, divided
1 1/2 pounds Broccolini or broccoli spears, trimmed (3 to 4 bunches)
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 ounces Pine River Sharp Cheddar Cheese Spread (or more to taste)
Heat oven to 400°F.
Place salmon on a greased 15 x 10-inch baking pan. Season with 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Arrange Broccolini and tomatoes around fillets.
Whisk the maple syrup, Dijon mustard, garlic, and remaining salt and pepper in a bowl. Spoon half of the maple mixture over salmon and vegetables.
Bake for 10 minutes. Spoon remaining maple mixture over salmon. Bake for 5-7 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily.
