Maple-glazed salmon

Wild salmon is known for its intense flavour so you don’t need too many ingredients to really make it the star of the show. This sweet and sticky marinade adds just the right balance to the rich and succulent fillets. 


75ml maple syrup
Juice of ½ lemon
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 tsp grated root ginger
Pack of 2 Waitrose 1 Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Fillets 


1. Light the barbecue or preheat the grill to high. Mix together the maple syrup, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic and ginger in a shallow bowl. Add the salmon and leave to marinate for 15 minutes.

2. Lift the salmon out of the marinade and barbecue or grill for 8–10 minutes until nicely browned and thoroughly cooked through.

3. Meanwhile, pour the marinade into a small pan and bring to the boil. Simmer gently for 2–3 minutes until syrupy. Strain into a small jug and pour over the salmon to serve. Enjoy with a crisp green salad.  

Cook’s tipSwap the maple syrup for clear honey if you prefer.
