Pure maple glaze with a hint of bourbon offers a delightful way to top off a salmon fillet

Here is a salmon recipe glaze that comes from one of our readers with a nice touch of sweetness.


1/4 cup of 100-percent pure maple syrup

2 tbs of bourbon

1 tbs of butter

1 tsp of cider vinegar


Combine ingredients in a small saucepan on stove top, and boil over medium high heat until thickened about three minutes. Baste salmon fillet and grill or bake, and re-baste just before serving.

Makes enough glaze for 1 1/2 pounds of salmon fillets

Tips: Don’t put the glaze on until the salmon is almost done and don’t let the glaze get cool as it will setup like concrete (of course reintroducing heat will quickly liquidize it again).

This glaze is surprisingly compatible with salmon, and definitely a good and simple recipe and a winner if you like something different.
