Maple Glazed Salmon

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 lb salmon fillets
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground garlic
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/3 cup water

Instructions

  1. Place salmon in a shallow baking dish.
  2. In a small bowl whisk together the maple syrup, soy sauce, and garlic. Pour the mixture over the salmon, cover, and place in refrigerator for roughly 20 minutes to marinate, flipping once.

Oven:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place salmon in the oven uncovered and bake for 18-20 minutes or until fish is easily broken with a fork.

Grill:

  1. Preheat the grill. Prepare the grill rack with an oil-soaked rag. Place the salmon on the rack and cook for 5 to 6 minutes depending on thickness. Use a wide spatula to carefully flip the fish and continue cooking for another 4 or 5 minutes or until the fish is opaque and cooked through.
  2. Remove the salmon from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, pour the remaining marinade into a small pan. Add the cornstarch, water and bring to a simmer. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Use a brush to coat the salmon with reduced marinade before serving. 

  4. Serve immediately.
