My new favorite salmon preparation

This was really easy for a weeknight, and very delicious! I increased the brown sugar to two tsp. and replaced half of the paprika with turmeric. As other reviewers suggested, I baked the fish longer, then poured on the maple syrup and broiled for two more minutes.

Easy to make and tasty!

I wasn't sure about this recipe, I've done several CL salmon recipes with fruit glazes or Asian flavors, so this was a departure, but very tasty! I followed the recipe as is, only subbing chipotle chile powder for,the ancho because that's what I had in my pantry, and per other reviewers I baked at 400 for about 12 minutes then broiled for a couple minutes, put on the syrup, then another 30 seconds or so under the broiler - perfect! The spice rub and maple syrup really complement each other, we will definitely add this to the rotation - my husband said this was better than the spicy glazed salmon at our favorite local high-end restaurant, so I'd say that's a hit!

I made this exactly as written, and it was absolutely delicious. I'll add my voice to the crowd and say this is a five star recipe, and would certainly make for company. We are big salmon lovers in this family, and this will be a go to from now on.

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.
