Maple Glazed Salmon

I did not become a fan of maple till I graduated from the artificially flavored maple syrup of my youth to the caramelized liquid gold actually tapped from maple trees. Depending on the season it is harvested, the subtle flavors of real maple syrup can also include nutty, vanilla, coffee, floral or spicy. It also contains more than 50 antioxidants.

Maple syrup enhances so many recipes, not just pancakes, and waffles, but even vegetables like these Maple Pecan Roasted Brussels Sprouts! Check out the Pure Canadian Maple Syrup site for all sorts of information and recipes. Then grab your real maple syrup and make this quick recipe for Maple Glazed Salmon.

A Divine Sweet and Salty Marinade!

I love the mixture of sweet and salty paired with salmon in this Maple Glazed Salmon recipe, so maple syrup with a splash of soy sounded like a wonderful flavor combination. Ginger and garlic added a bit of zing, and I’m thinking some red pepper flakes would have been nice as well. I’ve updated the photos with a mango, pineapple and strawberry salsa served atop the salmon. Another beautiful pairing with this Maple Glazed Salmon dish. Bill went to work raving about this recipe, and the lightened up Fettuccine Alfredo with which it was served. Stay tuned for that recipe.

  1. As a born & raised Vermonter, I can only agree that real maple syrup is the only one worth having. My husband calls me a snob because I will not eat the fake stuff, so be it.

  2. Congratulations on your awards! I also love the combination of sweet and salty in a recipe and this looks like a winner. It is so worth to pay far more for a bottle of pure maple syrup just to get that flavor and the benefits it offers.

  3. Maple glazed salmon is one of my family’s favorite dishes, its about the only way my younger brothers will eat fish. Your recipe looks delicious! I’ve never added ginger, I’l definitely give it a try next time 🙂

  4. And I was wondering what to do with my maple syrup! (I have had it for a year at least) Excellent idea!

  5. Oh, Liz! What a wonderful use for the maple syrup! We are never without it and my son adores salmon… sold!
    My kids never had the fake stuff, and I remember when I was younger that I always begged my mom to get the stuff that my friends had. I had never tasted it, but they all said it was so good. Now I”m thankful that she didn’t give in, and neither did I!

  6. I’m a big fan of salmon with any glaze,and is always good together with asparagus YummY 🙂

  7. I love salmon, never had glaze on it, but it sounds like it would be delicious! Great pictures as always! 🙂

    Like you, I’m not born into maple love… I’m getting more used to it, but I cannot abide maple syrup candies for example.

  13. I love maple anything and it looks like such a good pairing with this salmon! Yum. There’s really no going back to artificial after you’ve had real maple syrup, is there?!

  14. I guess we do need our Omega-3’s.

  17. Salmon is my most favorite fish and I make it so many ways. However I’ve never tried your version but plan to especially having all those ingredients on hand.

    Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  18. Mmm this is just the way I like salmon! (otherwise I don’t really like it all that much) Sweet & a little salty. I bet a little bit of crushed red pepper really would be amazing also! Yum! Great recipe!
