Enjoy a delicious and good for you dinner with this Maple Glazed Grilled Salmon.
Over these past several months, I’ve really been striving to overhaul my eating habits and one of those changes has been adding in seafood to our diet. Studies show that eating seafood twice a week helps support your heart and brain health and an estimated 50,000 deaths from heart disease and stroke are avoided per year by eating seafood! That’s huge! I have been getting a little creative with our seafood to mix it up and recently we fell in love with this Maple Glazed Salmon.
One thing that I love about cooking with seafood is that you can literally just grab it frozen out of the freezer and quickly defrost it with an ice bath, then it’s ready to cook. It takes just about 10-15 minutes to make most seafood for dinner and then pair it with some veggies. That’s exactly what I did to make this Maple Glazed Salmon and I used what I had on hand too.
Seafood is rich in Omega-3s and the USDA actually recommends eating it at least twice a week, so it’s fun to get creative so that you don’t get tired of it either. Honestly, I look at how much beef we eat a week and realize we need to be replacing some of that with seafood as well.

I decided to make this Maple Glazed Salmon on the grill and it’s very simple. I simply combined maple syrup with a bit of honey and rosemary. I brushed it on the salmon, letting it soak for about 10 minutes, then I simply grilled it on both sides for about 5 minutes until it was nice and flaky. I decided to pair it with broccoli and rice, then dinner was served!
