Recipe: Roasted salmon with maple glaze

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Dietitian's tip:

This salmon fillet doesn't need marinating and is ready to roast. The natural richness of salmon is wonderful with the simple maple syrup glaze. If you prefer, remove the skin of the salmon and grill 5 minutes on each side. Baste with the maple glaze as directed.
