I’m a big fan of simple salmon. Salmon has so many health benefits like omega-3s which reduce inflammation, and it’s loaded with b-vitamins and protein. It can help you have beautiful skin and I swear eating more salmon has helped reduced any menstrual pain I get. That’s why I love this Easy Maple-Glazed Salmon! Healthy, easy, and simple.

I always try to choose wild salmon if I have the chance, but there are some okay sustainable options as well. Just be sure to investigate and learn how the fish are raised if it’s labeled sustainable – there is a TON of sketchy farmed salmon out there that I would never eat

I usually buy my salmon from a local shop in Newport Beach, but sometimes I will order online from Alaska Gold Seafood. They have an amazing selection of salmon: all wild, flash-frozen and shipped right to you. I’ll buy a bunch of salmon in bulk and have them for the next two months or so. They also have other fish options, too!

Ingredients for Easy Maple-Glazed Salmon:

  • Salmon
  • Avocado oil
  • Maple syrup
  • Coconut aminos
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt + pepper

Personally, I choose not to eat soy as I feel like it doesn’t go well with my body and can potentially disrupt your hormones. That’s why I always use coconut aminos instead. It’s made with coconut tree sap and sea salt – that’s it. If you haven’t heard of it, it may sound a little weird, but it’s a wonderful soy sauce replacement! I personally think it tastes amazing (it doesn’t taste like coconut). It’s also naturally gluten-free and way lower in sodium than soy sauce. This is the coconut aminos I use.

How to Make Maple-Glazed Salmon:

Start by preheating the oven and then laying the salmon out on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Then mix all of the other ingredients together in a bowl and pour all over the salmon. Lots of the sauce will run off and that’s okay but try to get as much as you can on the salmon.

Then bake in the oven! In the middle of baking using a spoon, I took the sauce that fell from the salmon onto the pan and put it back on the salmon to try and get more to stay on there. Lots will come off as you can tell by the photo, but that’s okay!

The salmon is done baking when it easily flakes apart. Enjoy!
