Author Notes

I have been making this salmon for years. Everybody loves it & there are never any leftovers. It is so easy & rich. I cook the salmon until the center is almost done because once the salmon comes out of the oven it continues to cook, and therefore does not get dry. I have also made this with trout. —we eat. happy.

What You'll Need
  • 1 pound wild salmon fillet
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • sea salt & cracked pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and lightly oil a lined baking sheet. Clean the salmon, pat dry, and place at the center of the pan. Squeeze the lemon over the fillet (discard any lemon seeds) and season.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine olive oil, maple syrup, and mustard. Pour evenly over the salmon. Place on the top rack of the oven and bake for 17-20 minutes. Let the fish rest for about 5 minutes before serving.

This glaze was easy and so good. We grilled the salmon so it cooked a little bit faster than the recipe.

Easy and delicious. Like the idea of adding duill, will do that next time.

I've made this twice, once with agave nectar instead of maple syrup. I also added dill, it has come out perfectly both times and was a hit for a girls night party and with my husband. Thanks for the recipe!!
