You only need six ingredients and 30 minutes to make this healthy and delicious broiled salmon with a maple soy glaze.
We make salmon for dinner all the time and while my balsamic salmon recipe is our go-to, I decided to switch things up and try a maple glazed salmon. It turned out to be absolutely delicious! Maybe even better than the balsamic salmon?!?
There’s something about the salty and sweet flavor combo — it works on just about anything.
For this marinade I started with the sweet and salty components — tamari (gluten-free soy sauce) and pure maple syrup, but also added a few extras to shake things up — garlic, fresh ginger and a splash of lemon juice. Most of the sauce is used to marinate the salmon and the rest is used as a glaze after it’s cooked. It gives the fish a pop of flavor without being too overpowering.
One thing I love about seafood is that most of it cooks really quickly and this salmon is no exception. Once you’ve marinated the fish for 20-30 minutes, you broil it for less than 10 minutes and it comes out of the oven piping hot and flaky, ready to be paired with some veggies for a full meal.
Gotta love a dinner option that’s not only healthy, but also easy and fast to prepare.
