A Simple Recipe for Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon

At the request of my dear friends and fellow gardeners, Kylee Baumle, of Our Little Acre and Annie Haven of Authentic Haven Brand Natural Brew (Annie produces my favorite natural soil conditioner, Moo Poo Tea), I am happy to share my recipe for maple-soy glazed salmon. This easy recipe is tasty enough to serve for company, but simple enough for a relaxing dinner on Sunday evening. I like to serve it with a salad of greens and quinoa with wild rice. This recipe makes enough for a couple of meals. I like to bring it for lunch on Monday or serve it topped with a lightly poached egg for dinner on Monday night. Make sure you use real maple syrup to fully enjoy the complex flavors of the glaze.

Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon


  • 1/2 cup real maple syrup
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds salmon
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil


Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, mustard and black pepper and mix well. Cut the salmon into serving-sized pieces, and marinate for at least a half-hour, turning once or twice. Heat a heavy skillet to medium-high heat and warm the olive oil. Add the salmon, and gently cook the fish for 3-5 minutes on each side. For the last minute or two, add the remainder of the glaze to caramelize a little and coat the salmon. Enjoy!
