Roasted Salmon With Maple-Mustard Glaze


  • 1 and a half pounds de-boned salmon fillet
  • 2 tablespoons prepared whole grain mustard
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • black pepper to taste
  • lemon wedges for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 475º Farenheight.
  2. Rinse the fish and pat dry. Lay skin-side down on a parchment lined baking pan. (The parchment prevents the fish from sticking to the pan and greatly reduces cleanup time.)
  3. Cut a half-inch deep crosshatch pattern in the salmon. Season lightly with pepper.
  4. Mix the mustard and maple syrup together and smear over the fish. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until the salmon is crispy on the outside and medium rare on the inside. Remove the salmon from the oven and cover with foil or a plate for a few minutes to complete cooking. Serve with a squeeze of lemon.
