Maple Miso & Dijon Salmon


Sorry for the lack of updates lately, I’ve been keeping busy, taking up new projects at work and not having had any time or inspiration to cook up some new recipes!

I can’t believe it’s already April, and here Easter is just around the corner. Time is definitely flying. I’m definitely grateful for this long Easter weekend to just relax.Today, I have the easiest and simplest dish to make, and it all comes together in 30 minutes. How about that for quick easy meals?

Salmon is definitely one of my favourite kinds of fish. Full of heart healthy omegas and not as fishy tasting as some other seafood, it definitely needs some dressing up with awesome flavours. I decided to combine maple syrup (which, if you don’t know by now, I’m obsessed with), dijon mustard, and miso. There’s also a kick from some cayenne pepper. You’ll definitely enjoy this!


  • 2 salmon filets
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 tbsp miso
  • 1/2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper or chilli powder (can add more or less depending on spice tolerance!)  *optional


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place salmon filets on baking sheet lined with parchment.

In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, water, garlic, miso, dijon mustard, and cayenne pepper. Whisk on medium heat until bubbly and thickened. Pour the glaze over top and brush the filets so that it is evenly coated.


Garnish with some lemon slices. Place in oven for 15 minutes. Serve with salad and rice or quinoa! Enjoy 🙂
