Description

Easy Maple Glazed Salmon is a wonderful main course for entertaining or any night of the week!  Perfectly cooked salmon topped with a bold maple, soy, ginger glaze, this dish is sure to become a family favorite!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 portions center-cut salmon filets, skin removed if desired (about 1 pound)
  • ¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce or tamari
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup, preferable Dark Robust
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper, optional
  • Scallions and sesame seeds for garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Stir soy sauce, maple syrup, vinegar, ginger and crushed red pepper in a baking dish. 
  2. Lay salmon skinned side up in the marinade and refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour.  
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large roasting pan or rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  4. Lay salmon on the foil, skinned side down. Roast until the fish is just barely cooked in the center for medium, about 9 to 15 minutes. 
  5. Meanwhile, pour the marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Simmer until thick and syrupy, 6 to 9 minutes. 
  6. Pour the reduction over the fish before serving.

Notes

  • Store any leftover salmon with extra glaze in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. 
  • To test doneness, use an instant read thermometer and remove when internal temperature read 125F or when the salmon begins to flake when pressed with a knife
  • To pan-fry: heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat.  Place skin side down and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.  Remove from heat and when cooled, remove skin, top with glaze and enjoy!
