Maple glazed salmon with veggiesChili and Maple Glazed Salmon

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

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.

herb compound butter in a bowlHow to Make Herb Butter

An herb butter is a compound butter! A Compound butter is simply a mixture of softened butter and flavorful components like herbs and spices. For this salmon recipe we combine butter with a bunch of fresh herbs. We love using grass-fed butter like Kerrygold or Vital Farms, but really any butter you use will have an improved taste with the addition of herbs!

To make herb butter simply combine softened butter with the prepared herbs. You can make it up to 2 days ahead, if kept in the refrigerator.

This Grilled Salmon Bowl is the perfect healthy dinner that will leave you feeling way better than before you ate it. It starts with some perfectly grilled salmon. You can grill either outside or “grill” underneath the broiler in the oven. Then pile that salmon with some garlicky wilted kale, rice and your choice of pairings. This is the perfect spring or summer dinner that is also paleo-friendly, Whole30 and gluten and dairy-free.

Last year was my first year of joining a local CSA and frequenting my new town’s farmers markets. I came home week after week with incredible amounts of produce like this kale and garlic scapes, many of which at a loss of what to do with. (P.S. if you’re looking to save money eating organic, a CSA is an amazing resource). This year I’m working through all the different types of produce I take home to create into delicious meals that can be recreated by you.

How to Grill Salmon

There are two choices for grilling this salmon. The first is on a traditional grill outdoors. Though if that isn’t available to you, feel free to “grill” this under your broiler.

To “grill” fish in the oven: Place broiler on high. Place fish on a lined and greased baking sheet and broil for 7 to 9 minutes depending on the thickness of your fish. Add sesame seeds to garnish.

To grill on an outdoor grill: Grease grill and heat to medium. Place fish on a sheet of tin foil and cook for 8 to 10 minutes until fully cooked to your liking. Add sesame seeds to garnish.

Did you know fresh horseradish was a thing? After making this super fun and delicious Horseradish Salmon you’ll be a convert! Fresh horseradish tops this salmon and then broiled on top to form a crust for a unique weeknight dinner. 

Fresh Horseradish Crusted Salmon

Salmon is hands down one of my favorite ways to put a quick dinner on the table, and this Horseradish Crusted Salmon is no exception. It is flavorful, unique and simple to put together. To make it you process fresh horsersadish, mix it together with a few common pantry staples and then top the salmon before broiling the whole thing. The horseradish forms a crust on top and adds a nice flavor and texture to the finished salmon. Serve with a simple side of steamed or roasted veggies and dinner, or your favorite side dish and dinner is served!

Tips for Working with Fresh Horseradish

In case you’ve never worked with fresh horseradish before, we’ve got a few tips for you. You can find it in your local grocery store likely in the produce refrigerator near the mushrooms. It has a rough brown skin on it, similar to a celery root and might come wrapped in clear plastic.

Before using, you’ll want to peel off the brown skin. This recipe calls for adding it to the food processor and until processing it until it is finely shredded. You could do it by hand but it’s pretty labor intensive and is very pungent. 

And to that effect, no matter which way you process it, do be careful of the odor! It’s strong. So don’t stick your face close to it or take deep breathes in. At this point you may be wondering if it’s going to be too much on top of the salmon, but after adding the additional ingredients to it (namely vinegar) and baking it, it helps mellow it out.

    Horseradish Salmon

    Since we moved into our home in June, and now have a porch with a nice grill on it, you can bet I’ll be out there grilling as long as I can. I’ll likely get a heat lamp to extend the season, that’s for sure. I love all burgers, but especially Salmon burgers. They are packed with nutrients, and you can customize the flavors in totally different ways. Since my trip to the Muir Glen Farms I am even more into tomatoes then before, and these burgers give just a touch of that delicious flavor.

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    These burgers have just the right amount of flavor. They are bursting with scallions, jalapeños, and fresh garlic- and go fantastic with some homemade guacamole and fixins’, if you ask me!

      Ingredients

        For the Salmon

        Puttanesca Sauce

        • 2 cloves garlic, minced
        • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil, oil removed
        • 2 Roma tomatoes or 1 cup whole peeled plum tomatoes
        • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
        • 1/2 onion, chopped
        • 1/2 tablespoon capers
        • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

        • 1/2 teaspoon basil
        • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
        • Optional: 1/4 cup kalamata olives, drained and pitted

        Directions

        1. In a food processor or high-speed blender combine all of the puttanesca sauce ingredients and pulse for 1-2 minutes. You don't want it fully smooth, so don't over mix.
        2. Once done, transfer mixture to a medium saucepan and simmer over low heat for 10 minutes.
        3. Preheat oven to 350 ℉. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
        4. Cut salmon into 6 oz. portions.
        5. Rub salmon with 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with spices.
        6. Heat remaining oil in a medium skillet.
        7. Once the oil is hot, gently place your salmon face down in the pan and sear for 1-2 minutes.
        8. Transfer salmon to the baking skeet lined with parchment paper, skin side down and bake until the salmon has cooked all the way through. The timing will change based on how thick your salmon is, but should take about 5-10 minutes.
        8. Place salmon on a plate, top with puttanesca sauce and garnish. Serve warm with roasted vegetables of choice!
