I did quite a bit of research and created this recipe below based on various sources and ideas. I purchased the salmon frozen from Trader Joe’s and just thawed it in the fridge the day before.
- Maple-Glazed Salmon Prepare your seasoning and gather the glaze ingredients ahead of time and this will just take minutes to throw together. I served with soaked brown rice and steamed broccoli.
- 1 TBS oil (I used coconut)
- 1/4 tsp all-natural liquid smoke
- 1/2 cup maple syrup
- 2 TBS cider vinegar
- 4 salmon fillets, skin removed
- 2 tsp My Seafood Seasoning (see below)
- Move your oven rack to the top and pre-heat the broiler on high.
- In a small pot, bring the liquid smoke, maple syrup and vinegar to a boil and reduce over high heat, stirring for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
- Season both sides of the salmon with My Seafood Seasoning.
- Heat oil in a large, ovensafe skillet on medium-high. Cook the seasoned fish top-side down for 3-4 minutes.
- Turn fish over and pour the maple glaze over the top and place on top rack under broiler for 3 minutes.
- My Seafood Seasoning Combine all ingredients and seal in jar.
- 1 TBS Black pepper
- 1 TBS Dry mustard
- 2 TBS Sea salt
- 1 1/2 TBS Ground bay leaves
- 1 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
- 1 tsp Cloves
- 1 tsp Ground ginger
- 1 tsp Paprika
- 1 tsp Cayenne pepper
WHAT I LEARNED
I can do it. I can cook fish myself indoors. It didn’t even smell.
I loved it and both boys enjoyed leftovers for lunch. The fish and broccoli are also great for new fork-learners as well. The soft, flaky salmon is also a great texture for early eaters.
The salmon and the glaze have so much flavor that I just did butter in the rice and it went well with the broccoli. Salmon is such a good source of brain food that I will definitely be making this again and again.
