Brown Sugar Glazed Salmon with Jicama Salad

One of our favorite recipes is this gorgeous roasted brown sugar salmon served over a crunchy jicama mint salad made with fennel and arugula. The flavor of the dish were perfectly balanced and the high amount of protein and fiber left me satisfied but not weighed down. Ready in less than 30 minutes, it truly was a weeknight dinner dream come true.
