In a season filled with decadent treats, you’ll find us leaning into this healthy, protein-packed recipe. With a richly flavored glaze, it’s equal parts yummy (a must!), filling and easy-to-make. Additionally, the topping is padded with  Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides, which is flavorless, odorless and easily dissolves in hot and cold liquids. This makes it an ideal ingredient to use in any sweet or savory recipe. Plus, our collagen powder helps to support healthy hair, skin, nails and joints** — a total win-win! 

To create, simply mix together your ingredients in a saucepan and sear the salmon to soak in the flavors. Then bake the salmon in the oven for a few minutes and you’re good to go — it’s that simple!

If you’re ready to dive into all the goodness, grab your best sous-chef (aka your BFF) and get going on this Honey Glazed Salmon you’ll want to make over and over again.
