Maple Glazed Salmon & Blog Upgrade!

First and foremost.. did you all notice the wonderful new logo that is hanging up top there? Isn't it so pretty? Gosh! I am simply in love with it, and I am hoping that my readers feel the same. Well, do you?? No, I am not tooting my own horn here, as I did not create it. I am tooting Design Woodpecker's horn!!! Yup! She is a fantastic photographer and a freelance designer. This is her blog: Design Woodpecker. Now bear with her, as she hasn't posted anything up but she intends to. She also will be doing logo's for anyone out there that has a blog and wants a fresh new modern look and she comes highly recommended. Her photography is top notch and her design work is simply brilliant.

NOW that I am done being giddy about my blog logo, I will move on to the other topic at hand. MMhmmm.. Salmon!!! There are only a few salmon recipes that I have tried because Salmon is something that I do not like to experiment with. I eat Salmon once a week, so I alternate between this recipe and the other one that I have posted. Anybody have any other salmon recipes that is quick, please email me, I would love to TRY and post!!!

This particular recipe is more than just delicious. Its supple, soft, flaky and moist. The hint of maple grazes over  your tongue as you finish your bite. It also goes very well with the Asparagus on my last post.

::READER SUGGESTION ON LAST POST:: I got a wonderful email from a reader on my Asparagus. I was told "break off the ends where they want to snap naturally...  drizzle with olive oil ..  salt and pepper...  Place on hot grill and grill just until the get the nice grill marks all around and serve with what ever else is coming off the grill...  wonderful." Though I do not have a grill, I did break the ends where they wanted to snap naturally and viola!!!! I didn't even have to use a knife or a cutting board!!!! I love when there is so little to clean up. Thanks READER! you know who you are!!!

So people, keep the suggestions coming, i am learning something new everyday!!!

Maple Glazed Salmon
from cooking light magazine

  • 2  teaspoons  paprika
  • 1  teaspoon  chili powder ( I used Chipotle )
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 1/2  teaspoon  brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  sea or kosher salt
  • 4  (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • Cooking spray
  • 1  teaspoon  maple syrup

Pre-heat the oven to 350.
Combine first 5 ingredients. Sprinkle fish with salt; rub with paprika mixture. Place fish on  a greased pan and put it in the oven for 10 minutes. With a pastry brush  lightly coat the fish with the maple syrup and put it back in the oven  for another 12 minutes. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Please do try and let me know how you enjoy it. Happy EATING!!!


  1. Love the logo too! Great recipe and the asparagus tips (haha).

  2. If you will hop over here, I have about six or seven salmon recipes listed and we think they are all good. Check out the pecan crusted one. It is under fish recipes.

  3. Great tip from your reader. This works beautifully, but so does cutting if you want uniformity. Oh just tastes great either way. Your logo is super. I would love for you to join me at for Crock Pot Wednesday. We are all about ease of preparation and good taste.

  4. Cooking it now!! asparagus too. Thanks for the great ideas :)

  5. Oooooo, so pretty ... and so good for you too! Love using the maple syrup for this.
