Salmon has natural richness of flavor that works well with a simple maple glaze.

Ingredients

(Serves 6)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 pounds salmon, cut into 6 equal-sized fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • Fresh mint or parsley for garnish

Directions

Heat the oven to 450 F. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray.

In a small saucepan over low heat, mix together the maple syrup, garlic and balsamic vinegar. Heat just until hot and remove from heat. Pour half of the mixture into a small bowl to use for basting, and reserve the rest for later.

Pat the salmon dry. Place skin-side down on the baking sheet. Baste the salmon with the maple syrup mixture. Bake about 10 minutes, baste again with maple syrup mixture and bake for another 5 minutes. Continue to baste and bake until fish flakes easily, about 20 to 25 minutes total.

Transfer the salmon fillets to plates. Sprinkle with salt and black pepper, and top with reserved maple syrup mixture. Garnish with fresh mint or parsley and serve immediately.
