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

  • 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.

This Sheet Pan Herb Butter Salmon recipe is is the ultimate summer meal! It utilizes fresh veggies like cherry tomatoes and green beans and cooks quickly under the broiler. The herb butter makes the salmon really special and gives this dish a bright finish. This sheet pan fish dish is a light and quick weeknight dinner you can get on the dinner from start to finish in roughly 30 minutes with minimal clean up! It’s gluten-free, low-carb and paleo friendly.

Sheet pan dinners are the best because they minimize clean up by utilizing one cooking vessel and they make cooking hands-off. This sheet pan dinner is low carb for a nice light meal that is still going to leave you satisfied. It is packed with flavor and loaded with fresh, in-season vegetables. 

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.

Tips for Sheet Pan Cooking:

  • Read the recipe all the way through (of course) and plan to use a timer! Most recipes require different cooking times, so make sure to use a timer so you can truly walk away from the oven and not have to worry about when your adding anything in to the oven.
  • Do the prep ahead of time to make for a quick meal: Clean the vegetables and make the herb butter the night before or that morning if you are looking to speed up the process when it comes time for the actual cooking.
  • Use parchment paper to make clean up a breeze.
  • Use the correct size sheet pan. When we say sheet pan we are referring to the rimmed half sheet pan which is 18″ by 13″. The size of the sheet pan matters because you do not want to overcrowd the pan when cooking, so if you are using a smaller sheet pan you may need to use 2 to achieve the same result.

Grilled Salmon Bowl with Garlicky Kale

This Grilled Salmon Bowl with Garlic Scapes and Kale makes for the perfect summer meal in a bowl. Packed with flavor and fabulous ingredients, this dish is packed with everything you need for a delicious and nutritious lunch or dinner.

Grilled salmon bowls with an egg on topGrilled Salmon Bowl Recipe

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.

Salmon Rice Bowl Ingredients

For the fish:

  • Wild Salmon
  • Olive Oil
  • Dijon mustard
  • Coconut Aminos
  • Lemon
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Kale
  • Garlic scapes (if available, or garlic cloves)
  • Cooked White Rice 

Salmon Bowl Toppings:

Top your salmon bowl with whatever you have handy or you think might go well with it. I enjoyed topping mine with these options:

  • Cucumber 
  • Scallions

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.

    Today for Healthy Food Friday with American Express, I want to walk you through an easy, nutrient-dense, delicious, and filling weeknight meal.

    This encrusted salmon is just SO good and satisfying. Plus, it comes together quickly, perfect for those busy weeknights.

    So. Delicious.

    Surprisingly, when you cook the horseradish, it makes this amazing crust and isn’t a super strong horseradish-y taste. Just a whole ‘lotta goodness!

    Tomato Jalapeño Salmon Burgers

    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!

    Sticky Asian Glazed Salmon

    I can’t believe May is about to be over! What a fun month I’ve had with Healthy Food Friday and American Express exploring foods inspired by travel. Let’s recap. We had… Tomatoes and my Hearty Bolognese, Hot Peppers and my How To: Roasted Red Peppers, Coconut and my Coconut Shrimp with Orange Chia Marmalade, Turmeric and a Super Smoothie, and now GINGER and a delicious way to prepare salmon. A lot of recipes and inspired foods from other places around the world. I. love. it!

    I love ginger prepared with foods (especially salad dressing) but I also love it when I need to sooth my stomach or when I need an immune boost! I’ll throw it in some tea or even my morning smoothie for that extra boost when I’m feeling like I need it.

    The Health Benefits of Ginger

    Ginger on salmon = perfection. I love the flavors in this dish. Pair it with some roasted or sautéed veggies for a perfect, simple dinner!
