This was pretty easy and good. Didn't have ancho chili powder, so used two tsp. of regular chili powder, but used hot Hungarian paprika, and increased brown sugar to 1 tsp. Cut salt down to a dash, and had to increase syrup to two tsp., which still didn't begin to be enough. Broiled it for 7 min., then baked it at 350 for 5 min. Will make again with adjustments.

This recipe is amazing! It is very quick and easy, and tastes delicious. For me, however, 1 tsp. of maple syrup is not nearly enough to drizzle over a total of four salmon fillets. I use about 1 tsp. per fillet, unfortunately increasing the calories. Next time I may try it with honey to get the same sweet flavor without all the calories.

Our family loves this salmon recipe. Even my 4 year-old son raves about it. He says, "I love this chicken, Mama!" Ha, ha!

Family friendly, quick & enjoyable. This is one of our top 3 salmon dishes. Great for company. We broil it in the winter when the grill is just a tiny bit to cold for me.

I have been making and serving this for several years. People always ask for the recipe and cannot believe how easy it is. Even people who normally say they don't like fish, like it!

Very good salmon recipe. I wouldn't say it blew me away, but for such a quick and easy recipe, it certainly delivers a very satisfying and wonderful meal. Cooking time is a bit off - for 1-inch thick salmon fillets, you want 12 minutes in a covered grill at med-hi heat. That should give you moist, flaky meat that is nonetheless cooked through opaque.

I liked the flavor of this salmon, but I thought the quantity of spice was way too much and the quantity of maple syrup was way too little. I will make this again but will use the other CL recipe on this site that uses the same ingredients in different amounts.

This was just OK. I think I used too much of the rub and the flavor was overwhelming.

Very tasty. In regular rotation and I let the kids put a little syrup on the side which gets them to eat salmon!

This recipe is a family favorite! We have also served this to guests on several occasions, and it always brings rave reviews.

Loved this! And my 10yr old had a lot of fun making the spice rub. We served it with the Edamame Succotash (http://bit.ly/hLPDjs) and mashed potatoes! Delish. The chili powder and maple syrup - yummy combo!

This was really tasty and really easy! I did not have the ancho chili powder on hand, so I just used extra regular chili powder. I would definitely make this again.

I thought this was just ok. I, too, used extra maple syrup. But the spice blend just didn't do it for me. And I was hoping for more of a glaze with the syrup - instead , it just kind of slid off. Next time, I'll just stick to the sweet and spicy CL salmon recipe - now that's amazing!
