This Maple Glazed Salmon recipe is hands down one of my favorite ways to prepare salmon. I was first introduced to a recipe like this at a dinner I had at Mike’s parent’s house. His mom made a delicious salmon dish, and she mentioned it using brown sugar and maple syrup, and having a rub on it. I loved that idea so I knew I had to recreate at home and thus this Chili Maple Salmon recipe was born! It is simple to put together and a unique flavor combination. The chili and and the maple together are so good! Serve with a simple side of steamed or roasted veggies and dinner is served!

Ingredients Needed

  • Wild Salmon
  • Chili Powder
  • Paprika
  • Coconut Sugar
  • Sea salt
  • Pure Maple Syrup

What to Serve with Maple Glazed Salmon

Because salmon is such a quick dish to make, it’s best to serve with either a prepped ahead veggie dish (we like to roast a big batch of veggies at the beginning of the week to use throughout the week) or something that takes just a few seconds to put together, like a salad! 

Some other options are to serve with a quick cole slaw, like this one or this one, some zucchini noodles or other veggie noodles, or some cauliflower rice.

  1. This is incredible Lexi. Seriously, love the flavors, the maple syrup. Everything. We were just talking about making this salmon and I showed this one to Naomi. It will happen soon, thanks!

    1. You asked what coconut sugar is. It’s a natural sugar made from the sap of coconut palms. Healthy for people maybe, but not for trees. If sap is harvested, the tree cannot produce coconuts. Turbinado sugar is a substitute and can be found in most supermarkets.

  2. I have made this a couple of times now & it is my favorite recipe for salmon! My daughter & son love it too. So simple & so !

  3. Followed recipe exactly except did not have coconut sugar so I used brown sugar. Not only did mine look exactly like the printed recipe photo it was the best tasting salmon I have ever had. Thank you!

  4. This is one of my favorite go to busy night meals. When my boys have late football, basketball, baseball…you name it. I can make this while they shower and they LOVE it. If there is extra makes a great salad too.

  5. Absolutely a great recipe! Easy enough to meal prep and tasted even better the next day.
