Maple-Glazed Salmon (Simple and Delicious!)

Is it just me, or does the picture above look like chicken? I swear it’s salmon. I took this picture with my old, not so great camera. My new Nikon does a better job of making your mouth water, but I had not received it until the day after I made this salmon. Really, this picture should make you want to eat salmon, even if you hate it. Why? Because this recipe rocks!

Maple-Glazed Salmon


  • 6 (5-6 ounces) pieces salmon fillet
  • ½ tsp. salt
1 T butter
1/4 cup maple syrup, divided


  1. Heat broiler. Sprinkle salmon evenly with salt. In a large nonstick pan, melt butter on medium. Add salmon, skin side up; cook 2 minutes.
  2. Place salmon, skin side down, on broiler rack coated with cooking spray; place rack on broiler pan lined with foil (or use a foil-lined baking sheet if you don’t have a broiler rack or broiler pan) and brush salmon with half of the maple syrup.
  3. Broil 5-inches from the heat, 5 to 7 minutes, or until syrup caramelizes. Once out of the oven, brush with remaining syrup.


** This is a low FODMAPs recipe.

The nutrition facts analysis puts this at just under 400 calories per serving, plus about 1200 mg EPA/DHA (omega-3 fatty acids). Awesome. Right? That’s more than a say’s worth of Omega-3.

Eat this meal twice a week and you’ll average out to about 350 mg EPA/DHA, which is perfect for those without documented CHD (Source).Maple-Glazed Salmon (Simple and Delicious!) 1

So simple. So delicious. So good for you. What more could you ask for?!

QUESTION: What do you like to serve with your salmon? I actually ate this with a spinach salad. Then I ate it the next day, cold, on top of a spinach salad. There is something about salmon and spinach….it’s a great combination in my opinion.Maple-Glazed Salmon (Simple and Delicious!) 2

Oh yeah, one more thing, this was our view at last night’s OSU game against Illinois. Yes, of course we won (sorry Nicole, you beat us once, but never twice in a row!).
