Moist & sweet salmon

Salmon is one of our favorite seafood dishes here in our home. The kids affectionately refer to it as “pink fish”, and are always excited to see it on the dinner menu!

I love serving it up knowing we are getting a few of our healthy omega-3 fatty acids. It’s always fun to spice up a classic as well, just so it doesn’t become too monotonous…am I right?! 

Well this sweet version of Maple Glazed Salmon is a winner in my book! It has a sweet caramelization that is just mouth-wateringly good. The best part is it’s so easy!

The most important part is to monitor the baking. You don’t want to over-bake as it gets dry. But don’t worry, you’ve got this. Enjoy your restaurant-quality tasty dinner!

Baking Maple Glazed Salmon

SEASON. Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper in a small bowl.

CHILL. Line a shallow glass baking dish with foil. Place salmon in the baking dish and coat evenly with the maple syrup marinade. Cover the dish and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes, turning once about halfway through.

PREP. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

BAKE. Once the oven is preheated, bake the salmon uncovered for 15-16 minutes. Next, set the oven to broil and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork.

Storing Info

STORE leftovers covered tightly in the fridge for about 3 days.

FREEZE in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 4 months.  Thaw in the fridge overnight before reheating.

To reheat, it’s best to put it on a foil lined pan and reheat in a 350 degree oven or toaster oven. Do not microwave any leftover salmon – it will dry it out.
