Roasted Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon

You won't believe the amount of flavor you get from just three ingredients. The trick is WHICH three ingredients you blend for the salmon. I promise you this: it's the perfect flavor combination of sweet and savory. The maple syrup and soy sauce compliment each other beautifully, and the Dijon mustard adds the right amount of "kick". Taste and aroma literally soar off the plate.

I prefer to simmer the glaze ingredients together to create a sauce that actually sticks to the salmon. If you prefer to skip this step, just brush the thinner glaze over the salmon every few minutes as it bakes in the oven.

Roasted Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon

Cooking spray
4 salmon fillets, about 8 ounces each
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 tablespoons maple syrup
4 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons water
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper. Arrange the salmon on the prepared pan and season with salt and pepper.
In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, water, and Dijon mustard. Whisk to blend and set the pan over medium-high heat. Simmer for 5 minutes, until the mixture reduces to a thin glaze (somewhere between a maple syrup and honey consistency). Pour the glaze all over the salmon.
Roast for 10 to 12 minutes, until the salmon is fork-tender.
