This Spicy Maple Glazed Salmon Recipe is a perfect summer dinner idea! The maple glaze is the perfect balance of sweet and tangy, and it’s a great contrast to the flavor of the salmon.

Topped with fresh pineapple and jalapeno, it gets a nice touch of heat and tartness. Served over the soft and mild polenta, you get a very satisfying meal.

Pair it with a light salad or roasted vegetables for a complete dinner. It’s a very easy dish to prepare and it delivers a wonderfully fresh new way to get in those important salmon servings.

I’m not really a fan of fish that tastes “fishy”, so this low calorie salmon recipe was perfect for me. I will absolutely be adding this to my rotation of Weight Watchers Salmon Recipes. Enjoy!
