Method

  1. Whisk glaze ingredients and until combined. Taste for seasoning and adjust if necessary.
  2. Pour 3/4 of the glaze over the salmon, reserve the other 1/4 for drizzling. Rub the glaze in and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
  3. Place a skillet over high heat with some frying oil and once it reaches smoking point, carefully place the salmon in the skillet flesh side down. Let it cook without flipping for 2-3 minutes, then flip and cook again for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat, and drizzle on the remaining maple glaze.
  4. Heat Luvo meal and serve on a plate.
  5. Add the salmon on top and garnish with parsley (optional).

The best way to eat this salmon is 3/4 done so it’s nice and tender, otherwise will be too dry.
