This FODMAP-friendly salmon is a hit with its sweet and spicy flavor. Aside from being a common pancake and waffle topping, maple syrup has over 50 beneficial compounds – some of which act as anti-inflammatory agents. To make sure you buy the truest form of maple syrup, buy the product that says “Pure Maple Syrup” instead of “Maple Flavored Syrup.” With this sweetness you won’t want to miss out on this salmon, a great source of heart healthy and brain boosting omega 3 fatty acids.
