  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.
  2. Whisk together maple syrup (the portion for the salmon) and mustard. Season salmon with some salt and pepper and rub maple-mustard mixture over the top. Bake until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 25 minutes, depending on thickness of the salmon and your desired doneness (1 1/2” / 3.75cm thick salmon will take about 20 minutes).
  3. While salmon cooks, heat a saute pan over medium heat. Add butter and when it melts, add mushrooms and saute until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until garlic is fragrant, ~1 minute. Add greens and saute until greens are wilted, ~3 minutes more. Remove pan from heat and stir in vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve salmon over greens and mushrooms. Top with chopped pecans and enjoy!
