Maple Glazed Sockeye Salmon


There’s only 5 ingredients and the clean-up is easy! So it’s a simple and delicious recipe that’s perfect for a busy weeknight!

Inspired by the flavors of Alaska and British Columbia, it’s a delicious blend of sweet heat with Canadian maple syrup and a bit of spicy paprika and chili powder.

For shopping tips at home, I tend to look for a fresh filet of wild-caught sockeye salmon at my local grocer. It’s easily recognizable for it’s deep red color.

Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. Then add the maple syrup, paprika, chili powder, and sea salt to a small bowl and whisk together.

Line a shallow glass baking dish with tin foil, being sure to use enough to cover the edges of the dish, and place the salmon inside.

Pour the syrup mixture over the salmon filet, taking care to coat it evenly.

Cook the salmon for 15 minutes. Remove the fish from the oven and coat it with syrup from the dish using a basting brush or spoon. Cook for an additional 5 minutes.

The salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
