This Maple Glazed Salmon is insanely good. The salmon is bursting with flavor. It has a mild sweetness from the maple syrup and a hint of saltiness from the soy sauce. It literally seems to melt in your mouth. After your first bite, this will be a regular on your dinner rotation. It's that good.
Mix ½ cup maple syrup, 3 tablespoon coconut sugar (brown sugar), 3 tablespoon soy sauce, 1 tablespoon lime juice, 2 teaspoon minced garlic, ¼ teaspoon paprika, and ⅛ teaspoon pepper in a bowl.
For The Salmon
Line a 9 x 13 baking dish with aluminum foil.
Lay salmon fillets in the pan. Leave about a ½ inch between fillets.
Sprinkle salt and pepper on top of fillets.
Mix ½ teaspoon garlic powder and ¼ teaspoon of paprika. Sprinkle evenly on top of salmon.
Pour glaze mixture on top of salmon fillets evenly.
Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Place in the heated oven and bake for 30 minutes. Check with a thermometer after 30 minutes to make sure the internal temperature of the thickest part of the fillet is 145 degrees. It may take a little longer or less, depending on the thickness of the fillet. Salmon will flake with a fork when it is done.
Serve with the glaze spooned over the top of the salmon.
