Savory sweet Apple Wrapped Salmon is a great dinner for two. Let's stay in for this week's date night, shall we?
This is your next date night dish. It looks impressive, but each component has only 4 ingredients (excluding salt and pepper, of course). We’re also practicing compartmentalized cooking: we make our side dish while our main dish bakes.
This way, we don’t look like a harried mess in the kitchen with one too many things going on. Instead, you look like a woman who knows her way around the kitchen. You need just one free hand for stirring the slaw while it cooks. The other hand can be for clinking wine glasses, after the romantic toast your honey is suddenly prompted to give when he smells the aroma of bacon and apples cooking together.
There’s something magical about bacon and subtly sweet things, like apples or maple. Sure, they’re great together at breakfast, but this apple wrapped salmon is one fancy dinner you don’t want to skip. The hardest thing about this dinner might be choosing which wine to serve with it.
The baked salmon comes together so quick, you might miss it! First, brush the salmon with an easy mix of maple syrup and coarse-ground mustard. Next, wrap the salmon fillets in apple slices and place in the oven. Done! Now, we’re free to make the slaw in a quick 20 minutes. It couldn’t be simpler, and the flavors deliver a big wow.
My husband loves this dish so much that I’ve even scaled it up to serve for a crowd with great results. You know it’s a big deal when I’m creating a recipe that works for more than two people!
Do you have a favorite date night dish? If not, I beg you, try this one just once. You’ll be head over heels from the word go – I promise.
