For me, the fall is all about fuzzy socks, oversized sweaters, and maple EVERYTHING!

In fact, fall is what inspired me to make this maple-glazed salmon recipe. I receive a great amount of enjoyment out of combining sweet and savory flavors to create ultra palatable meals, and this easy dinner recipe is exactly that – scrumptious!

The salmon turns out nice and crispy, yet moist and tender, with a nice balance of herby, savory flavors with that delectable maple glaze.

The best part? It’s quick and easy to prepare, yet appears fancy!

If you tried my Crispy Honey-Glazed Salmon Recipe  from a few years ago, you’ll absolutely love the maple version just as much! 

Ingredients For Maple Glazed Baked Salmon:

Salmon: Salmon is packed with protein and healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for brain and hormone health and are also amazing for healing your gut lining. Omega-3s are very important to your overall health! I eat seafood every week in addition to taking an Omega-3 supplement to ensure my needs are being met. If you aren’t a fan of salmon, you can swap it for halibut or cod. I go with King salmon, but you can also do coho, sockeye, or trout.

Spices: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, oregano, sea salt. I find this combination makes an AMAZING dry rub for any type of animal protein. I use it on everything! If you follow a Low-FODMAP diet, omit the garlic powder and onion powder. You can either replace them with something else or leave the recipe as is…it is plenty flavorful without!

Coconut Sugar: In addition to pure maple syrup, I use coconut sugar to generate sweetness and also form the crispy outer layer. I sprinkle it on at the same time as the spices. If you don’t have coconut sugar on hand, you can use brown sugar or skip it!

Pure Maple Syrup: The star of the show here! The simple addition of pure maple syrup at the end of baking results in a lovely glaze that requires so very little effort. A simple drizzle leaves you with a nice finishing touch.

How to Make Maple Glazed Salmon:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and pour a small amount of avocado oil (or high-temp cooking oil of choice) in the bottom of a casserole dish (or spray with cooking oil). Spread it around with your fingers so that the salmon doesn’t stick to the casserole dish while baking.

Place the salmon fillets in the casserole dish and brush with avocado oil. Sprinkle with paprika, sea salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and coconut sugar. 

How to make baked maple glazed salmon

Bake on the center rack of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish).

Spoon any pure maple syrup from the bottom of the dish over the salmon and serve with choice of side dishes. I love salmon with Stir Fry Vegetables or Roasted Vegetables.
