I usually eat salmon about 1-2 times a week. I am always looking for new and exciting flavors when it comes to salmon dishes. Have you tried my Blackened Salmon with Mushroom Cream Sauce or my Coconut Curry with Blackened Salmon!? (They are two of the most popular recipes on my site!) While these dishes are a bit more elaborate, this Maple Glazed Salmon is a simple, easy, flavorful option.

The secret to elevating the flavor of this salmon is two-part.

  • First, using fresh ginger is a must. Fresh ginger has a stronger flavor and when minced and placed on salmon it helps to create the perfect crispy crust.
  • Second, fresh rosemary is the game-changer for this salmon recipe. The fresh rosemary paired with the maple and ginger helps to create a dynamic, herbaceous, peppery flavor– it’s sooo good!

You’ll definitely want to make this salmon. It’s:

  • The perfect balance of sweet & savory
  • Seasoned with fresh ingredients
  • Easy & quick to make

How To Make Maple Glaze For Salmon?

Making the glaze is super easy. All you need to do is combine the prepared ingredients in a small bowl. Then, pour the glaze over the salmon. If time permits, let the salmon marinade in the glaze for at least 10 minutes). For the best results, baste the salmon with the glaze a few times while it is baking in the oven.

Here are a few tips to help make your Maple Glazed Salmon turn out PERFECT!

  • Take 1” of the ginger and slice it into dials. Place the dials under the salmon. The flavor will seep through the salmon while baking!
  • After baking the salmon for 20 minutes, baste the salmon with the maple ginger sauce and a bit of maple syrup, and broil uncovered for 3-5 minutes. This will give the salmon a golden, flaky, caramelized crust.
  • I like to make my salmon just a tad spicy. Add ¼ tsp of red pepper flakes when seasoning the salmon to make it a bit spicy.
  • I bake my salmon in a CorningWare Baking Dish. It is ceramic and comes with a glass top.

  • 2 tbsp Coconut Amino (or Soy Sauce)
  • 1/2 tbsp Fresh Rosemary, chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  • Cover the salmon and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the salmon from the oven. Turn the oven on a High Broil. Using a large spoon, pour glaze from the baking dish on top of the salmon (baste the salmon). Drizzle 2 tbsp of reserved maple syrup on top of the salmon.
  • Place the salmon back in the oven and place under broiler for 3-5 minutes, or until the top of the salmon is golden brown.

Notes

Use Pure Maple Syrup, like this one, for the best results. (Do not use pancake syrup)
Salmon is done when it changes from its initial translucent color to an opaque (pink) color. If the salmon begins to flake but the inside is still slightly translucent in the middle, the salmon is done (fully cooked).

  1. This sounds so delicious! I make miso glazed salmon all the time but never thought to try a different marinade. Maple syrup and ginger sounds like the perfect match and it looks super yum!
