"A fabulous sweet and salty glaze is basted on salmon as it grills on cedar planks. The quick and easy glaze can be used on chicken and pork as well. Good quality, grade B, pure maple syrup makes all the difference." — Alli

I am a huge fan of Grilled Salmon, and have tried two previous maple-soy glazes. This one is the WINNER! It was just the right balance of salty and sweet. I cut the pepper down just a bit (I have small children) and I actually mixed up the glaze and cooked it on the stove in a saucepan and added a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up. I cooked the salmon on the grill without cedar planks but on foil and when it was 90% done, I brushed the glaze on reserving some for rice and veggies. (I doubled the glaze recipe). It was terrific. I had a maple soy glaze recipe from Bon Appetite that I had tried but this one is going to be replacing it. Thanks.
Nice combination of flavors but I didn't think this added a whole lot of flavor to the fish. Perhaps if the salmon were marinated in it for a few hours, it would hold more taste. There is a recipe on here for a salmon marinade with brown sugar and soy sauce that we LOVE - I just didn't have time to let the fish soak, so I opted for a glaze, thinking it would work almost as well. I was wrong.
This was excellent! I made a few adjustments to bring more flavor to the salmon and to cook inside rather than out. I used double couarsely ground salt and pepper and heavily rubbed the top of the salmon. I also put 1 tsp of ginger and garlic in the glaze mixture. I then lightly pan-seared the salmon in olive oil on one side, placed the fillets in the oven on broil and basted with the glaze about 4 times for 10 minutes (I prefer my salmon more well done than not). It was easy and quick to make and my guests loved it.
verry good I added some ginger and fresh garlic and glazed frequently under a broil and it was the best salmon I had ever had!
Amazing! For 2 people, chose to broil @ 450 instead. Used 1.25 lbs salmon fillet & cut in 1/2. Skinned it & rubbed salt & pepper on both sides. Seared all sides on stovetop in olive oil. Dbl the glaze amt (used 6 svg measurements) cooked on stove & added cornstarch to thicken. Broiled salmon on broiler pan for 8 min, taking it out every 2 min to baste generously with glaze. Served with brown rice & mixed veggies & extra glaze. YUMMY!!!!! Thank you!
I was surprised how good this turned out, I love the salty and sweet combo. Everyone had a second helping of this. Only change I made was that I added minced garlic after reading some of the reviews. I also served the spinach alfredo rice recipe as a side dish from this website, fantastic!!
I've tried quite a few salmon glaze/marinade type recipes from this website and without a doubt, this is the BEST one out there! (I even tried a recipe that had 1300 reviews with 5 stars and it couldn't touch this one). This recipe also makes a great presentation, better than the photo shown.
Loved it! Went exactly by recipe except forgot about chives & lemon - nobody was the wiser. This will be our standard for grilling salmon from now on! Thanks!!
