Author Notes: The ingredient that prevails in this recipe is maple syrup. We still reap the benefits from my grandfather's old sugar bush in the Northeast Kingdom, so maple syrup is a constant presence in our kitchen. Combined with wine and lemon juice, the resulting cooking liquid is glaze-y and nice to spoon over the salmon. This is a no frills dish that makes a great, simple dinner with a veggie and a nice baked sweet potato. Bevi

Serves 2

  • 1 pound or larger wild salmon fillet
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Grade B maple syrup
  • fresh ground pepper and sea salt to taste
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the salmon fillet in a small roasting pan. I actually bake the salmon in our toaster oven.
  2. Pour the wine in the pan. Zest the lemon, and then squeeze all the juice of the lemon over the salmon. Then, drizzle the maple syrup over the fillet. Lightly salt and pepper the salmon, and top with the lemon Zest.
  3. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Check once or twice to baste the salmon and to make sure that the liquid in the pan has not completely reduced - you may want to add more wine. When the salmon is done, serve with a little of the reduced sauce spooned over the fillet.

Thanks! It really does take care of that meal crunch. Five minutes to prep and you're ready to pop in the oven.

We had this for dinner last night with some white & wild rice and a salad. I did substitute dry bvermouth for the white wine, to avoid opening a bottle of wine. This was a quick and easy way to prepare the salmon, everyone in the family liked it.

I am so glad it worked for you! Vermouth works really well with fish. Check out the fish fillet recipe I posted - vermouth is an ingredient and adds nice flavor.

The edit function is not working. In step 3, baste the salmon with the liquid a few times while it is baking.
