Maple Balsamic Glazed Salmon

There are a lot of things I consider a pantry must have, balsamic vinegar happens to be in that category. It’s beyond versatile and can be used to make a million things. One of which is to drizzle it on fresh, ripe, juicy strawberries. Go ahead, do it. You’ll thank me. You can send me a bottle of really good balsamic to thank me ; ) But today we’re using it as a glaze for salmon. Did you swoon. You should.

Would you believe it only takes 20 minutes top to bottom to make that succulent slab of salmon. It’s true and just 4 simple ingredients. Don’t take my word for it, I saved that bite just for you to see for yourselves ; )



Maple Balsamic Glazed Salmon


  • 2 pounds salmon - cut into 6 filets
  • salt/pepper
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic - minced
  • green onions - thinly sliced, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 450° degrees
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat. Place salmon, skin side down, on baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In small bowl, whisk together: syrup, vinegar and garlic. Brush half of the glaze over salmon.
  4. Bake 10 minutes. Brush with remaining glaze and continue baking additional 5 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.
  5. Garnish with optional onions.
