  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 2 Salmon Steak Fillets
  • 4 tsp Birch Syrup
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ground Ginger
  • Salt & Pepper to taste



1. Combine 3 tsp birch syrup, ginger, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.  Add fish to marinade and turn to coat thoroughly. Cover and refrigerate to marinate for a minimum of two hours or let it marinate overnight.

2. Place salmon steaks in an oven safe pan, skin side down, coat with remaining 1 tsp birch syrup and bake for 20 minutes at 350 F.  I find it helpful to line the pan with tinfoil for easy serving and cleanup.

3.  Serve with your choice of vegetables.  I have the recipe in the notes for birch syrup glazed carrots below.


Try it BBQ’d!  Barbecue on a hot grill for 20 – 45 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish.

Birch Glazed Carrots
1/2 lb carrots
1 Tbsp orange juice
1/4 c birch syrup

Mix birch syrup and orange juice in a small mixing bowl.  Pour over cooked and drained carrots. Sprinkle with ginger, if desired.
