Ingredients For Maple Mustard Salmon
- Salmon fillets: Try to use fillets similar in size to ensure an even baking time. (You can use fillets with or without the skin for this recipe.)
- Maple syrup: Always use pure maple syrup!
- Dijon mustard: We use smooth dijon mustard but grainy dijon can be used instead. (Grainy dijon will add texture and give your salmon a more mustardy flavor.)
- Garlic: An essential ingredient to any recipe! (You’ll only need 2 cloves.)
- Spices: Salt, cracked black pepper and and touch of paprika are all you need for this roasted salmon recipe!
How To Bake Maple Mustard Salmon In The Oven
- Preheat your oven. Turn your oven on to 400 degrees and spray a baking dish with cooking spray.
- Make your glaze. Mix your maple syrup, dijon mustard and garlic together then set it aside. (You can reserve some of your glaze for serving later if you prefer. We’ll usually take a few spoonfuls out and put them in a separate bowl.)
- Prepare your salmon. Place the salmon fillets in your prepared dish and brush them with your glaze. (If using fillets with the skin on, place your salmon skin side down in the dish.) Then sprinkle each fillet with salt, pepper and paprika.
- Bake. Place the dish in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
- Serve! Serve immediately with your reserved glaze and enjoy!
- Can I prep any ingredients beforehand? Yes! You can easily make the glaze 1-2 days in advance. (Just note the longer it sits the more “garlicky” it will become.)
- How do I know when my salmon is done baking? Your salmon should be a pinkish orangish color throughout and flake easily with a fork.
- Can I save my leftover salmon? Absolutely! Just place your leftover fillets in an airtight container and keep them stored in the fridge. They should stay good for 3-4 days is stored properly.
- How do I reheat my leftover salmon? It’s best to do it low and slow! Place your salmon in a baking dish and heat it in a 275 degrees oven for 10-15 minutes or until it reaches your desired temperature.
