Maple Bourbon Glazed Salmon

 Salmon grilled in a light sauce made from maple syrup and bourbon. Makes a fast and easy dinner that everyone at your table will eat.

I am so into maple syrup lately. The real stuff, not the kind with a cabin on the label.

My kids love salmon. They regularly ask for it as a dinner choice. I did nothing to get them like this, they just ask. I am not as enthusiastic about salmon. So I added a maple syrup sauce to the salmon and now everyone can be excited about dinner.

The sauce is made of stuff you have in your fridge and pantry and takes about 2 minutes to whisk up. I make the sauce while the grill heats up and we can be eating in about 20 minutes. I usually serve it over Trader Joe’s jasmine rice with a little salad or some steamed broccoli.

Bourbon Maple Glazed Salmon


  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 lb salmon


  1. Combine first five ingredients in a bowl and whisk until combined.
  2. Cut salmon into serving sized portions.
  3. Brush tops of salmon with the glaze and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. (I brush the salmon and then turn on the grill.)
  4. Grill salmon, brushing with glaze about every few minutes until cooked to your level of doneness.
  5. Drizzle remaining sauce over salmon and serve over rice, mashed potatoes or pasta.
