Ingredients

  • 1 lb side of salmon
  • cup maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce coconut aminos for paleo/gf
  • 3 tablespoons water optional; see note 1

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Arrange salmon skin side down on a large piece of foil set on a sheet pan (make sure you have enough foil to completely wrap the salmon up). Fold the edges of the foil up slightly to keep the sauce from running out.
  • Shake together the maple syrup and soy sauce, then drizzle all over the salmon. Seal the foil so the sauce + salmon are enclosed. You can marinate the fish at this point for 30 min- 2hours, or put it directly into the oven.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, checking fish with an instant read thermometer. For well done, cook to 145°F. For medium, cook to 125°F. If you have individual fillets, they may be done quicker, so be sure to check them earlier.

Notes

note 1- if you'd like to make this without the foil, you can bake it up in a baking dish (make sure to use one that is not too big for the fish because sauce can over-reduce), but you'll need to add 3 tablespoons of water to prevent the sauce from over-reducing.
Storage
After cooking, store salmon in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
Reheat
Heat in a 350°F oven in a covered baking dish for 10 minutes, or until warmed through.
Doneness
  • well done- cook to 145°F internal temperature
  • medium- cook to 125°F internal temperature
