Recipe Box: Maple Glazed Salmon

countdown banner

The heroine of my first book is a very busy gal–she mostly survives on takeout sushi and Thai food–but when she does have a little time to make something for herself, she needs it fast, tasty, and healthy. After all, scaling buildings and jumping from trains takes an AWFUL lot of energy.

The story is mostly set in Seattle, and here in the Pacific Northwest salmon reigns supreme. Here’s a recipe Cat *might* make, if she had a little time. (And it’s a recipe her creator *does* make all the time, to rave reviews from her very picky boys.) It’s ridiculously easy. The recipe below serves 4.

Maple Glazed Salmon

  • 4 salmon fillets (approx 1 1/4 inches thick)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds, toasted

1. Move the oven rack to the upper-middle position and preheat the oven to 500 degrees. Lightly oil a baking dish.

2. Season the fillets with salt and pepper and lay skin-side down in the baking dish.

3. Bake for 5 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, mix the maple syrup and soy sauce together in a small dish. After 5 minutes of baking, brush the maple-soy glaze over the salmon and continue to bake 5 more minutes (or until the fish has just turned opaque). Do not overcook.

5. After baking, brush again with glaze and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.


So tell me, what’s your favorite salmon recipe?
