I absolutely love salmon. Sweet or savoury, it doesn’t matter, I love it all! Tonight I decided it would be a sweet version so maple glazed salmon it is. How Canadian, eh? For sides it will be baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon butter and steamed green beans with corn on the cob. These sweet potatoes are like the ones you’ll find at popular steakhouses. Soft, sweet interiors jazzed up with the cinnamon butter. Sooooo good.

Start by scrubbing your sweet potatoes and piercing them with a fork. Line a sheet pan with foil and place sweet potatoes on the pan. bake in a 425 oven for 1 hour.

In the meantime, make your maple glaze. Whisk together maple syrup, honey, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat. Mix the cornstarch and water in a small dish to make a slurry and add to pan. Cook until mixture thickens, approx 5 mins. Remove from heat and set aside.

Wash and prep your green beans and corn cobs (or other vegetables of choice) and place in the baskets of an electric steamer (you could also boil or roast them instead if you don’t have a steamer). Do not turn steamer on just yet though. You are waiting for the potatoes to be almost done their bake first.

For the cinnamon butter, add softened butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt in a small bowl and mix together with a spoon until combined. You can pour this mixture onto waxed paper and roll into a log and refrigerate if you want to get fancy but I chose to simply mix it up and then will use a small portion scoop later.

Five minutes before your sweet potatoes are ready, turn your steamer on and set the timer for 20 minutes.

Once sweet potatoes have finished their hour bake, remove the pan from the oven and add salmon portions to the other side of the pan. Top each piece of salmon with your maple glaze and return pan to the oven for 15 mins (yes, sweet potatoes are going back in too).

Place salmon, green beans, and corn on the cob onto a plate. Cut a long slit along the top of the sweet potatoes and using an oven mitt, squish the potatoes from the very ends towards the centre to fluff the insides. Top with a small scoop of cinnamon butter and enjoy!
