Maple and Mustard-Glazed Salmon


This delicious and simple salmon recipe is a major time-saver. It only takes a few minutes to whip up the glaze and about 5-6 minutes for broiling. Not to mention, it's my favorite dish of all time!  

How To Make Maple and Mustard-Glazed Salmon

Ingredients: salmon fillet, dijon mustard, Sriracha (red rooster) hot sauce, maple syrup and chili powder.



Mix dijon mustard, maple syrup and chili powder in a bowl. Season it with a pinch of salt. This will be the glaze for the salmon.


Brush the glaze on the salmon fillet.


Set the broiler to high and place the salmon on top rack. It's important to place the salmon close to the broiler so the glaze will caramelize (as shown below).  It's also important to use a conventional versus a toaster oven for broiling, as the toaster oven broiler is not strong enough to caramelize the glaze. I have tried using a toaster oven for this, which was an epic failure. Make sure the oven is slightly open for ventilation. Broil in high heat for 5-6 minutes, or until the glaze turns into small dark circles.  The dish is done! 


I personally like to use Sriracha hot sauce as a dip for this salmon dish. It compliments so well with the sweetness and sourness of the maple-mustard glaze.


Ingredients: 

1 lb of Salmon Fillet
1 tbs of Maple Syrup 
1 tbs of Dijon Mustard
1/4 tsp of Chili Pepper 
1/2 tsp of Salt

Optional:
Sriracha Hot Sauce
Lemon Juice

Directions: 

1. Mix dijon mustard, maple syrup and chili powder in a bowl. Season it with a pinch of salt.

2. Brush the maple-mustard glaze on the salmon fillet. 

3. Set the broiler to high and place the salmon on top rack (must use a conventional oven). Broil for 5-6 minutes or until the glaze turns into small dark circles. 

Optional: compliment with a splash of lemon juice and Sriracha hot sauce.
