Glazed salmon recipes have become very popular here on The Ranch, thank you very much Mirin Glazed Recipe, so this maple mustard version came to life.
Turning to my freezer supply of Wild Caught Sockeye Salmon, preheating the oven to 400 degrees, I simply combined two tablespoons pure maple syrup, two tablespoons Maille Whole Grain Dijon Mustard and two tablespoons soy sauce. This was enough for two filets.
I whisked the three together in a small bowl, placed the salmon on a small sheet pan lined with parchment paper and baked them for about twenty minutes until the fish was flaky and done and buttery scrumptious.
During that twenty minute baking time, I basted the salmon with the glaze every five minutes.
The side dishes were simple. Before I started the salmon, I started some yellow rice stove top. I always keep a couple of packages of Vigo Yellow Rice in the Pantry. I love the color and it’s easy to prepare and it’s very tasty.
While the salmon was cooking, I prepared a simple tossed salad tossed generously with my homemade Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.
We thought the salmon was so very good. The savory mustard with the sweet maple syrup and the salt from the soy sauce was a beautiful combination.
What’s The Best Way To Cook A Salmon Fillet?
Culinary school taught me that the oven is my best friend when it comes to cooking salmon. Of course you can pan fry, of course you can grill. But for a consistent buttery moist texture, I can’t give up my oven roasting method. So easy and reliable.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Add some fat (butter or olive oil) or a thick glaze to the flesh of the salmon
- Place salmon on a small sheet pan lined with parchment paper. (easy cleanup for those sticky glazes)
- Simply roast salmon fillets for 20 minutes. If you’re using a glaze, or flavoring marinade, baste salmon every 5 minutes.
- Even if the size of each fillet isn’t perfectly consistent, this method will yield perfectly cooked salmon. Not overdone, not underdone … but just right.
