Maple Teriyaki Glazed Salmon

Recently, I had a hankering for salmon and I was looking for a different flavor combination to try.  This is a super easy, fast and delicious recipe.  I’m working on incorporating more fish into my diet to help raise my good cholesterol levels!  Don’t know what means?  Check out my recent Journal post for more information.

But first, whip up this little bit of goodness!

¼ cup maple syrup
1 T low sodium soy sauce
2 T teriyaki sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp ground ginger
¼ tsp garlic powder
16 oz. salmon (approx. four 4oz servings)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Look at that beautiful salmon!

In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, garlic and ginger.

Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture.  Sprinkle the filets with garlic powder and black pepper.

Cover the dish with aluminum foil and place the baking dish in the preheated oven.  Bake the salmon covered for about 10 minutes.  Remove the foil, baste the salmon with the sauce, and then bake for an additional 10 minutes or until easily flaked with a fork.

Serve immediately and be sure to include the sauce!

  1. If you marinate the salmon in the sauce for a few hours then cook the salmon has so much more flavor


I would love to hear from you!
