My favorite way to have salmon is cooked with maple syrup and soy sauce. But on the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle plan, maple syrup is not conducive to weight loss. So I used the maple syrup that we make for use on pancakes (from the THM Cookbook). You can use soy sauce but I used coconut aminos because it has a bit of sweetness to it.
I know these pictures aren’t the best of the finished dish but it was still good and very good for me.
I got this 4 ounce salmon filet at Dollar Tree for a buck . . . not bad.
I recommend thawing it first, as it cooks more evenly and quicker too.
Put the filet into a small skillet and add one tablespoon each of soy sauce or coconut aminos and sugar-free maple syrup.
Cook over medium – medium high heat for about 5-8 minutes.
Mine was still frozen so I put a lid on it.
But when I took off the lid there was too much moisture in the pan and it took a while for the liquid to boil down.
But it turned out okay in the end.
