Salmon wrapped in crispy prosciutto coated with maple and baked to perfection! This 20-minute recipe makes for a perfectly satisfying and nutritious weeknight meal.
Eating Salmon once or twice a week isn’t an excuse for it to get boring. Okay, so Mr. Protein can eat the same plain salmon over and over again without being fazed. That perhaps my friends is because he is so focused on the ‘protein intake’ factor that he doesn’t notice the actual flavor (minor details). Give him a rock and assure him it has 30g of protein and he will be chewing on it all-day-long, hahaha.
However, the rest of us… hmm well, we kind of get sick of it preeeety quick. And let me just say this, for the record… I cannot stand another -‘salmon again’ grievance from my kids. Soooo, I gotta do, what a mother’s gotta do, to get them to eat Salmon with no complaints!
