Salmon With Maple-Lemon Glaze


Salmon is a great source of protein, vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. And in this recipe, it’s as flavorful as it is nutritious.

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 6 minutes
  • Total Time: 26 minutes


2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon canola oil
Four 6-ounce skinless salmon fillets
Cooking spray
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the broiler. Combine the first 4 ingredients in a large resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon to the bag; seal. Refrigerate for 10 minutes, turning the bag once.
  2. Remove the salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade. Place the marinade in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 minute.
  3. Coat a large ovenproof nonstick skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fish evenly with salt and pepper and place in the pan; cook for 3 minutes. Turn the fish over. Brush the marinade evenly over the fish.
  4. Broil for about 3 minutes, until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork (or reaches your desired degree of doneness).
