These maple glazed salmon fillets are simplicity itself. Nothing more than salmon soaked in maple syrup, soy sauce, and paprika. Sure, they marinate all day, but they take all of 10 minutes to cook. And the flavor? Well, look at how many testers loved it.
Crazy weeknight dinners just got a heck of a lot less stressful thanks to this maple glazed salmon. Just five ingredients, 10 minutes of effort, and dinner is done. Swear.–Renee Schettler
Maple Glazed Salmon
- Quick Glance
- 10 M
- 9 H, 15 M
- Serves 2
- For the marinade
- 1/3 cup regular or gluten-free soy sauce
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
- For the salmon
- Two (6-ounce) wild salmon fillets (about 1-inch or 25-mm in thickness)
- 1. Early in the day, stir together the soy sauce, maple syrup, water, and paprika ingredients in a snug dish or a resealable plastic bag. Place the salmon in the dish or bag, turn to coat, and cover or seal. Place in the fridge for up to 9 hours–trust us, the longer the better the flavor.
- 2. Just before serving, adjust the oven rack so it’s in the top third of the oven. Preheat the broiler for at least 5 minutes. Line a baking sheet with foil.
- 3. Place the salmon on the foil, skin sides down. Broil for 6 to 8 minutes, keeping close watch. The salmon is done when the sides are no longer translucent and the tops look as if they are about to flake. Serve immediately.
