This maple soy salmon is an easy and flavorful dinner that requires only 5 simple ingredients and 20 minutes of cooking! Pair it with some fresh quinoa and steamed broccoli for an easy weeknight or weekend dinner.
- Whisk together all of the ingredients for the sauce.
- Add the salmon fillets to a shallow baking dish and pour the sauce on top. Let marinate in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
- During the last 10 minutes, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- After 30 minutes, transfer the salmon to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (but don’t discard the sauce!) and bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven and your preference of “doneness.”
- While baking, add the leftover marinade to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low and allow the mixture to thicken slightly.
- When the salmon is done, remove from the oven and brush more of the sauce on top (saving some for whatever you pair this salmon with).
- Serve with rice, quinoa, sweet potatoes or veggies of choice!
If your salmon was previously frozen, take it out of the freezer in the morning, remove it from the package and let it defrost in the fridge during the day.
Once cooked, this salmon will last in the fridge for 1-2 days.
I like my salmon cooked very well, almost slightly dry, so I generally cook it for 20-25 minutes. If you prefer it just cooked through, you’ll want to cook it for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven and how thick the fillets are.
I like to use this garlic press to make the garlic very finely minced.
