Maple syrup is not just for breakfast! Believe it or not, the sticky-sweet goodness is the perfect compliment to fresh salmon fillets!
Mixed with earthy walnuts and chili powder to create a sweet and spicy crust, this seasonal seafood supper is quick to make, impressive to serve and best enjoyed with rice!

Molasses in stead of maple syrup.
