This maple glazed salmon recipe wows everyone! It’s fast and easy, covered in a luscious balsamic maple Dijon sauce.


  • 1 1/2 pounds salmon fillets, room temperature
  • Olive oil, for brushing
  • Heaping 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, grated


  1. Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature. Preheat the broiler to high*.
  2. In a small saucepan, whisk together the maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard and grated garlic. Simmer 3 to 5 minutes on medium low heat until slightly thickened.
  3. Place a large sheet of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and brush it with olive oil. Pat each piece of salmon dry and place it on the foil skin side down. Brush salmon with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt evenly divided among the fillets. Spoon about half of the maple glaze over the salmon (set aside at room temperature until the salmon is cooked).
  4. Broil 4 to 5 minutes for very thin salmon or 7 to 10 minutes for 1-inch thick salmon, until it’s just tender and pink at the center (the internal temperature should be between 125 to 130 degrees Fahrenheit in the center). Brush the salmon with the remaining glaze, which should have thickened more after resting. Serve immediately.


*If you don’t have a broiler, go to Baked Salmon and follow those instructions for cooking, applying the maple glaze before baking and after.
