Broiled Maple Soy Glazed Salmon with Spiced Carrots

My husband thought he didn't like salmon.  Salmon happens to be one of my favorite things, and it's jam packed with nutritional goodness.  Not to mention pretty easy and stress free to prepare.  So naturally I decided to attempt to convert him to a salmon lover like me!  I found success with this recipe:

Maple Soy Glazed Salmon  (Serves 4)
4 (6oz.) Salmon Fillets
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
dash of dried ginger
dash of cayenne pepper
Salt and Pepper to taste

1.     Preheat broiler.
2.     In small bowl, whisk olive oil, maple syrup, soy sauce, ginger, and cayenne until combined.
3.     Place salmon fillets in broil safe dish, skin side down.  Brush with sauce, salt and pepper, and broil until cooked through, 8-10 minutes.
4.     (Optional:  Make a 2nd batch of sauce for spooning over salmon after plating for an extra bit of flavor.  I highly recommend doing so!)

Spiced Carrots
1 lb. carrots, cleaned and cut into thin coins
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1.     Preheat broiler.
2.     Toss carrots with olive oil and place in broil safe dish.  (NOTE:  You can make the carrots in the same dish as the salmon, if you like.  I used a metal 9" X 13" baking dish and spread carrots on one side, starting them 3 minutes before adding the salmon.) Broil until tender, 10-12 minutes.
3.     Remove cooked carrots to bowl and add salt, pepper, and nutmeg.  Stir to combine, serve warm.
