Easy One Pan Maple Glazed Salmon
This Easy One Pan Maple Glazed Salmon is the perfect main dish for salmon lovers! Salmon fillets caramelized in a maple glaze, on the table in 20 minutes!
Servings 6 servings
- 1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
- 6 3-4 ounce boneless skinless salmon fillets
- salt and pepper
- 1/3 cup real maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
- a dash of Sriracha (optional)
- fresh chives and sesame seeds for garnish (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Heat a large cast iron (or other oven-safe skillet) over medium-high heat and add the oil.
Season the salmon fillets on both sides with salt and pepper and add to the hot pan, top side down.
Let brown until caramel-coloured on the first side (about 2 minutes) and then flip to brown on the other side.
While the salmon is browning, whisk together the maple syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and Sriracha in a small bowl and pour it over the salmon fillets.
Add the whole pan to the preheated oven, uncovered, and cook for about 7-10 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes with a fork.
Spoon the maple glaze over the salmon again before serving. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped chives, if desired.
