Easy Maple Baked Salmon Recipe

easy maple glazed salmon recipeWe love salmon! We also love maple syrup, especially the glorious golden homemade syrup right from our own trees! Check out our post from last year on how we tap our farm trees to make maple syrup.

We don’t get to eat good salmon as it is hard to buy around here, but when we travel a bit further to the big supermarkets we always purchase a fillet or two for a nice dinner in.

There are lots of ways to cook salmon. This is the easiest and one of our best loved cooking secrets! It is simple, delicious and is done and ready to eat in half an hour.

What you will need:

1/2 -3/4 cup of good quality pure maple syrup

salmon fillets – size is up to you

dash of salt

Preheat your oven to 425° F and line a baking sheet with aluminium foil then spray the foil with non-stick cooking spray. Place the fish on the foil skin side down. sprinkle with a little bit of salt and then drizzle about 2 tablespoons (for each fillet) of maple syrup over the fish.

Place in the oven and bake for 8 minutes. Using an oven mitt, pull the fish out of the oven and drizzle with 2 more tablespoons of maple syrup.

Repeat this process until the fish is cooked and the maple syrup is browned on the fish – approximately 25-30 minutes.

Let the fish cool slightly before serving. We love to eat this sweet and savory fish with a side of wild rice!
