Maple Glazed Salmon

Oh man.  Summer is really getting heated.  I swear, summer in Southern California doesn’t really start until August.  That’s when that outdoor heater is on 24-7.  Can’t sleep heat.  Ugh, but I actually love it.  It’s weird.  But seriously, I really love hot weather.

I’m just not a big fan of cooking in heat.  It needs to be quick and easy.  And fresh.  I rarely eat fish, but a couple of times a month I give in and cook some up.  The last few times I have cooked salmon, and cooked it the same way.  This recipe changed the standard rosemary and lemon way up nicely.

All you need is:

  • Salmon – I cooked for two people, we had .60 pound
  • 1/4 cup organic maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup soy sauce
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 500
  2. On medium heat, heat syrup and soy sauce for a few minutes.  Add spices and continue cooking for several minutes.  About 8-10 minutes total.  Remove from heat.
  3. Rub a few pinches of salt and pepper on fish
  4. Cook fish for 4 minutes.
  5. Remove.  Generously brush fish with sauce.  Put back and cook for another 4 minutes
  6. Remove fish and coat again with sauce.  Continue cooking for another 4-6 minutes.

Remove and Enjoy!!

Top with some fresh salsa over a bed of greens.  Enjoy your weekends!  I’m ready to waste away mine at the beach 🙂
