Maple Marinated Salmon

This recipe is really easy to throw together and delicious. The other nice thing is the marinade ingredients are kitchen staples so I find the cost of the wild caught salmon filet justified 🙂  This is only the second time that I’ve made this dish and now I am wondering why I haven’t cooked it more often, especially since it’s a great natural source of healthy Omega-3 fatty acids, while low in inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids. I need to remember to add this into our regular dinner rotation.

Maple Marinated Salmon


  • 1 lb Salmon (wild caught is best)
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper


  1. Mix maple syrup, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, garlic powder and black pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish. Top with marinade. Cover dish and place in fridge to marinate for 1 hour or longer.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Uncover dish and cook for 15 to 20 minutes depending on thickness of salmon.
  4. Remove from oven and spoon additional marinade from bottom of baking dish onto salmon.

Along with the salmon we had sauteed bok choy and coconut garlic rice (recipe coming sometime in the near future. It’s our favorite rice dish!).
