Oven Baked Frozen Salmon with Maple Mustard Glaze


About this Recipe

From straight out of the freezer to soft on the inside and crispy on the outside oven baked salmon. This recipe is a must-have if you love salmon but are lost for time to create dinner from scratch.

Salmon is a great staple protein after bariatric surgery if tolerated well and appropriate for your diet post-op. This fatty fish contains about 7g of protein per ounce (28g) and has invaluable omega-3 fatty acids that have anti-inflammatory effects.
