Wabanaki Maple Curried Salmon with Millennia Tea Infused Rice

 A healthy holiday dish sure to leave your guests begging for the recipe!

Wabanaki Maple Bourbon Syrup is slowly aged in only the finest award winning Kentucky Bourbon barrels, giving the salmon a golden buttery taste that’s rich with a storied flavour. 

Millennia TEA is the freshest and most antioxidant rich tea anywhere. (Seriously) Giving the rice a simple superfood boost without altering the flavour of your dish.

Ingredients: 

  • 150gm of Salmon
  •  2 tbsp Wabanaki maple syrup
  • 1 tsp curry
  • Rice of your choice
  • Millennia TEA (Cubed or Chopped)
  • Carrots
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt 
  • Pepper 
  • Butter
  • Chives

Directions

  • Prepare the rice as directed, using brewed Millennia TEA (with the leaves) in place of the water called for in the rice recipe. Toss the carrots in a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, and bake until tender crisp, depending on the size of the carrots 
  • Make a glaze for the salmon by mixing the syrup and curry together. Oil your baking dish and put your salmon fillets skin side down. Sprinkle with coarse salt and fresh ground pepper. Brush ½ the glaze over the portion of salmon to begin, basting again half way through the cooking time (around the 7 min mark) 
  • Baking at 350 degrees, for approximately 15 min total (adjust as needed depending on size of salmon) 
  • Tip: It's really important to not overcook the fish, which is really easy to do, so keep a close eye
  • Once everything is cooked, stir a bit of butter and chives into the rice, plate your salmon and carrots and enjoy this delicious local New Brunswick company inspired dish.
