I have the most quick and easy salmon recipe for you!

This salmon is incredibly juicy and flaky, marinaded in a sweet maple glaze, and baked in the oven for simplicity.

The maple glaze only requires 4 simple ingredients, and tastes absolutely delicious. The salmon is marinaded in the sauce before baking, and baked with the sauce for maximum flavour.

This is one of my favourite meals to make because it is just so quick to throw together, and it tastes SO GOOD. I’m sure it’ll become a favourite in your house, too!

Tips & Tricks for this recipe

When is salmon cooked? Salmon is cooked through when it can easily be flaked with a fork, and the flakes look opaque and pink.

Maple syrup: If you can’t get hold of maple syrup, you can use 1/4 cup (85g) honey in its place.

To serve: You can serve this salmon with a variety of foods. I mostly serve mine with rice, and a serving of broccoli.
