Sweet Heat Glazed Salmon with Acorn Squash
Preheat oven to 425F.
Toss the sliced acorn squash and red onions with fresh thyme and extra virgin olive oil and place on a lightly greased sheet tray lined with parchment. Roast in preheated oven for about 20-25 minutes, until soft and tender with slight charring on corners.
For the glaze, combine brown sugar, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper in a bowl. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper. Drizzle in extra virgin olive oil to create the vinaigrette. Toss with kale.
Heat a sauté pan over medium high heat. Pat salmon dry with a paper towel and season lightly. Add oil to the pan. Place salmon fillets down and sear until a crust has formed. Flip and brush top with sweet heat mixture. Cook until the internal temperature reaches 145F. Remove from pan and brush with sweet heat glaze.
To serve, spoon a bed of onions and squash on the bottom of the plate. Top with salmon and garnish with kale salad. Enjoy!
