There’s no reason not to start eating more healthy any time of year, so don’t be dissuaded if you’re reading this recipe in October! You can always take baby steps, which is easier than massive changes all at once. What about skipping just one unhealthy item at the grocery store? Or cut down the amount of that “less-than-heathy-product” which you usually buy; every little step helps.
Want to eat more fish? Put it on your grocery list and buy it after finding a recipe you want to make (hint: like this one)! One tiny step at a time, one better decision each day, one healthier choice (even once a week), all adds up!
This marvelous maple glazed salmon sheet pan recipe is not mine. All the credit goes to my phenomenal friend Melissa Lanz from The Fresh 20. However, this beautiful photo is by her wonderful husband and fabulous photographer, Trent Lanz. Isn’t it gorgeous?
If you think I’m overdoing the superlative adjectives with this couple–I’m not. They are two of the most inspiring people you could ever meet! I’ve wanted to share one of Melissa’s recipes and tell you about The Fresh 20 for years, but somehow I just never got around to it (shame on me). Here is a photo of Melissa and Trent, with their boys, from a few years ago. They still look the same, but their boys are strapping teenagers now!
Without writing an epic, suffice it to say that I admire Melissa immensely. She has helped me to grow my site and my knowledge of the business world, and extended such helpful advice which has provided me with opportunities beyond my imagination. I will be forever grateful.
Melissa is incredibly talented, a phenomenal businesswoman, wonderful mother and wife, and fabulous friend (this I know firsthand)! Did I mention that she’s also a cookbook author, presenter, workshop and conference leader, passive income coach, and sought-after speaker?
If you’ve ever seen my British apple pie post, the actual pie in the photos is one that I made for Melissa as a thank you when I had just started my site. She had given me some advice which was beyond helpful, and I wanted to show my appreciation. You know me, I do it with food. That pie led to me catering her book launch party, and we’ve been good friends ever since!

Sounds great, right? That’s because it is! This maple glazed salmon with bok choy is exactly the sort of deliciously healthy recipe you will come to expect from Melissa and The Fresh 20.
If you’re like me, you may not every have even had bok choy before. I discovered it only a few years ago when my friend Valentina brought it to a get together, and it’s become one of my very favorite greens!
I love it roasted, steamed, made into chips, in soups, and almost any other way you can give it to me! It’s a beautiful vegetable, too. The Fresh 20 menu plan and cookbook will introduce you to fruits and vegetables, you may have never heard of, but will discover you adore.
