Grilled Maple Salmon

Find home care near you or your loved one:

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 Tbsp. (30 mL) pure maple syrup
  • ¼ tsp. (1 mL) salt
  • 2 salmon fillets (4 oz. / 125 g each)
  • ½ fresh lemon


  1. Preheat grill to 450°F/230°C (high).
  2. Measure salmon at thickest part. Plan to grill 5 minutes per inch (2.5 cm) of thickness, per side. (i.e., 1-inch [2.5 cm] thick means 5 minutes per side. Set a timer; do not overcook.)
  3. In a bowl, combine syrup and salt; generously brush onto one side of the salmon. Reserve the sauce to brush other side.
  4. Place seasoned side down on grill for about 5 minutes; brush top side of salmon with maple syrup and salt before flipping. Cook for remaining (5 minutes) or appropriate time per thickness.
  5. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over cooked salmon. Let rest 2–3 minutes before serving.
