  • 12 ounce salmon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper, ground


  • 4 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon mustard, dijon
  • 1/2 tablespoon vinegar, balsamic
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce, low sodium

Serve With

  • 2 1/2 pound winter squash
  • 2 medium apple
  • 1 cup brown rice, raw


  • Preheat oven to 450°F.
  • Place whole squash on a baking sheet and roast for 1 hour or until the skin is papery and a fork inserted into 2 or 3 different spots reveals very tender flesh. Set aside to cool.
  • Prepare brown rice as directed on package.
  • While squash is cooling, reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees for the fish.
  • Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper, and cook for 10 minutes.
  • While salmon is baking, mix together the sauce ingredients.
  • After 10 minutes of cooking, brush sauce over the fish. Turn the oven to broil and continue cooking until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  • When squash is cool enough to touch, peel away the skin, discard the seeds, and cut into cubes.
  • Serve salmon with squash, rice and apple slices on the side.
