Maple-Glazed Salmon

    This recipe has a good contrast of flavors and is one of the better salmon recipes I've tried. The main problem I noticed was that the syrup runs off during/after broiling, and any leftovers have to be re-glazed. I served this with roasted potatoes, a salad, focaccia and riesling. I would probably make this again, although we likely won't eat salmon again until the next time wild-caught becomes available.

    Wow! My husband, who loves salmon, said this was the best he'd ever eaten. We both love lots of flavor, so I used the amount of rub called for in the recipe for 2 pieces of salmon but kept the maple syrup to 1 T.

    Amazing! Made as written, but omitted the ancho powder because I ran out. Served with the suggested couscous and it was a hit. Would be a lovely dish to serve company; it's simple but impressive.

    My husband and I enjoyed this dish. After about 5 or so minutes on broil, I reduced the heat to 400 to finish the fish. The couscous was great with the salmon (on its own, it would be a little lack lustre). I used dried dill b/c I wanted to not have to buy any ingredients. I'll make this again.

    We loved this! We didn't have ancho chili powder and used all regular. We also used smoked paprika instead of regular (it's what we had on hand). This was really delicious! We served it with the tomato couscous which was also good.

    I guess I just don't like paprika. This recipe was not something I will make again. It made the fish flavorful, but didn't really compliment the salmon. Served with the tomato dill couscous on the same page. Not too impressive.

    Awesome! This was a great salmon recipe as I'm always looking for new and different ways to incorporate fish into our diet. My two teenagers said they loved it also so it's truly a success in our house.

    Devine! We've tried a bunch of salmon recipes, and this rates with the best. We grilled the salmon rather than broiling.

    Followed recipe directions as listed, but did not use the ancho chile. Instead substituted with cayenne pepper. Liked the combo of rub flavors with the syrup. Served with steamed rice, packets of zucchini, yellow squash, grape tomatoes, and diced onion cooked on the grill. Was given the thumbs up to add this meal to the rotation. I liked the rub, but next time I make a batch, will add less salt (too much for my taste in the recipe)

    Excellent! Had 8 oz filets and needed to broil for 8 minutes to medium rare

    Great flavor. My children (under 7 year old) loved it. I added a splash of lemon juice and EVOO to the tomato dill cousous. Will make again!

    I thought the rub was pretty good. It had to be broiled for at least twice as long (it might be due to the cut we got). We only used 1T of maple syrup, and thought the sweet was too sweet for the contrast with the rub. I think there are much better salmon recipes out there.

    YUMMY. Even my teenager liked it. Will definitely make again. The glaze was the best part.

  • AMMoore Posted: 01/17/11

    I substituted cayenne pepper for the ancho chile since it was what I had on hand. I forgot the brown sugar in the rub. I loved this but my husband spit it out. He said all he could taste was the maple syrup and I only used 1 tablespoon. But he doesn't like sweet flavors on his meat. I'll try it again with just the spice rub (including the brown sugar). Made the tomato-dill couscous as a side and it was a hit.

    The rub for this recipe is fabulous and the last minute maple syrup glaze pulls it all together! We also did the couscous recipe on this same page and it a great combination. We will definately do this again.

    This was very good! I was a little skeptical about how the spices in the recipe would blend with the maple syrup, but it turned out very good. I love easy, delicious recipes like this!

  • foodiemom13 Posted: 08/18/10

    I thought this was a great recipe, broiling the salmon was a nice alternative to grilling. I wish the spice rub had a bit more heat to balance the sweetness of the maple. All around a yummy recipe and I will definitly be making it again!

    MY WHOLE FAMILY LOVED IT, TEENAGERS TOO. I FOLLOWED THE RECIPE ALMOST EXACTLY, 2TBLSP OF SYRUP WAS TOO MUCH AND DIDN'T USE IT ALL. I HAD 2 LARGE THINNER FILETS AND THE COOK TIME WAS PERFECT. DIDN'T MAKE THE COUSCOUS, SUBSTITUTED A WILD RICE SALAD. GREAT!

    This salmon recipe is a nice addition to our rotation, suitable for family meals. I would not serve it to company. (However, I would serve CL's Sweet Orange Salmon to company.) The maple flavor was not strong so I would say it's more of a hint of maple taste. A quick recipe for evenings where time is short. We served the salmon with couscous and it paired well.

    My husband said it was one of the best meals I've made him! That either says a lot about this dish...or a lot about my cooking..haha! It was VERY quick and easy and I paired it with the couscous recipe as well which was a great combo.

    This is our family favorite recipe for the past 3 or 4 years. My kids (7 & 4) devour it. I serve it with a mango and papaya chutney that we make fresh, just add a little lemon and cilantro, green beans and rice with a little flat leaf parlsey mixed in. The combinations are delicious.

    This was a nice, different taste for the salmon. Not the usual salmon prep. Very easy and quick to prepare. Definitely throw into the weeknight rotation.

    I LOVE this dish. I think it is so good I feel like I'm at a restaurant eating it. So quick too! The cooking times were different, but I think that is expected from different broiler temps, etc. I have made this MANY times.

  • socorro411 Posted: 02/22/12

    Very nice easy and tasty. Next time I will try it on the grill.

    This was very nice. Quick, easy and delicious though we grilled the salmon on our Traeger BBQ.

    I normally don't like salmon fillets. I have been searching for a recipe that I like because I know that salmon has a substantial nutritional value. I tried this recipe and fell in love. It is one of the best meals I have ever made and The fact that it is quick and incredibly easy makes it even better.

  • ssindici Posted: 09/14/12

    This recipe was outstanding. It was very simple to make and incredibly flavorful. My kids (ages 6, 4, and 2) lapped it up. So excited to find this gem.

    Quick and delicious! Next time I will try the tomato-dill couscous.

  • FWBruce Posted: 10/21/13

    This was very easy and delicious! The rub started to burn under the broiler, and so I finished it at 400*. I substituted cayenne pepper for the ancho chile powder, but am looking forward to trying it again with the ancho.

  • AuntQ9 Posted: 11/18/13

    I never liked salmon until this recipe. My husband loves it too. The plus is it's so easy to make after a long day at work. We have it almost every week. :-)

    This has been my "go to" recipe for salmon fillets for many years. It always gets rave reviews - wouldn't change a thing!

  • stormydogblue Posted: 03/05/14

    Sounds weird, tastes GREAT! I cook my salmon on the grill instead of under the broiler. Brush or drizzle on the maple syrup right as its about to come off. My children and husband devour it.

  • mamakrup Posted: 11/14/13

    a go to recipe when using farm raised salmon instead of wild.
