Maple Ginger Baked Salmon

Maple marinated Salmon with Green Onion and salad on gray plate.

This baked salmon dish is easy to make with few ingredients. It is sure to become a family favorite!

My favorite dishes to make are those that are easy to prep yet taste delicious. What I love about this salmon dish is that I can marinate it just before cooking or overnight, if needed. It also uses very few ingredients.

What You’ll Need:

  • wild-caught salmon
  • tamari or coconut aminos
  • fresh ginger root
  • maple syrup
  • ground black pepper
  • green onion

Making the Recipe:

You’ll start by making the marinade. Mix together the tamari with the maple syrup and minced ginger. Pour the marinade in a glass baking dish or a zip top bag. Place the salmon in the marinade and marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours.

When you are ready to bake the salmon, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Add the salmon to an oven-safe baking dish. A 9×13 sized dish works great. Bake for 15 minutes.

Slice the green onions and add them to the salmon before serving. I love to pair this dish with a simple mixed greens salad for an easy dinner meal for my family.

Description

This baked salmon dish is easy to make with few ingredients. It is sure to become a family favorite!


Ingredients

Scale

For the Marinade:

  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tbsp. coconut aminos (or gluten free tamari)
  • 1 Tbsp. ginger root, minced

For the Fish:

  • 1 tsp. avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 lb. salmon, wild caught
  • freshly ground black pepper, to season (optional)
  • 1 green onion, sliced

 


Instructions

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade and whisk well.
  2. Cut the salmon into 4-6 pieces.
  3. Place the salmon in a baking dish or a zip top bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon and let it rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  4. Oil a 9×13 baking dish with avocado oil.
  5. Heat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit during the last 10 minutes the salmon is marinating.
  6. Place the salmon skin side down in the baking dish. Bake for about 15 minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, transfer the remaining marinade to a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Continue to cook on low heat until the marinade reduces to about 1/4 cup and thickens.
  8. Slice the green onions and set aside.
  9. Once the salmon is done cooking, transfer it to serving plates and pour a little of the reduced sauce over each piece. Season with a little freshly ground black pepper (optional). Top with the green onions.

Notes

This salmon can be marinated up to 24 hours before cooking. To save time the day of cooking, marinate the salmon overnight.
