Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon

Salmon is a great choice for a healthy dinner for the family. Tonight, we enjoyed fresh salmon with a homemade brown sugar glaze. I love that salmon doesn’t have the fishy taste. I also love how healthy I feel after eating it! Did you know that salmon is full of vitamins, minerals and high-quality protein? I accompanied the star of the meal with a fresh vegetable medley.
