Maple Syrup Glaze

  • Pure maple syrup about 3 tablespoons
  • Coarse ground dijon mustard about 2 tablespoons

Brown Sugar Glaze

  • Dark brown sugar about 3 tablespoons
  • Dijon mustard about 2 tablespoons


  • Salmon with or without skin, 2 - 4 pieces
  • Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400º
  • In a small bowl, mix the glaze of your choice.  Use the measurements given or adjust to your taste, whatever ratio of spicy-sweet you like.
  • Arrange salmon on a foil-lined baking sheet.  Season with salt and pepper.  Brush or spoon glaze all over the salmon. Bake in oven for about 12 minutes.
  • Let salmon rest for about 5 minutes, loosely tented with foil, then serve.  If you used salmon with the skin, when you serve it, use a spatula and remove just the fish and leave the skin on the pan.  It should come off very easily.


The maple syrup and mustard uses coarse ground dijon and the brown sugar and mustard uses regular dijon.  The maple syrup glaze is a little milder and sweeter than the brown sugar glaze.  I love dijon and use Maille brand which has a kick to it.  Since these glazes only have two ingredients, quality matters.
Nutrition information is for the brown sugar glaze.
