Maple-Glazed Salmon with Pineapple


Broiled salmon is incredibly moist and tender and perfect for a weeknight meal. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of the salmon; I suggest checking for doneness after 10 minutes.

2 fillets


  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup, divided

  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce (such as Bragg®)

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger

  • 2 (6 ounce) skin-on center-cut salmon fillets

  • ¼ teaspoon Cajun seasoning

  • 1 serving cooking spray

  • 2 slices fresh pineapple, halved

  • 2 wedges lemon


  1. Combine 2 tablespoons maple syrup, soy sauce, lemon juice, and ginger in a bowl. Place salmon into the marinade and turn to coat. Marinate for at least 15 minutes, but no longer than 30.

  2. For the glaze, mix remaining 2 tablespoons maple syrup and Cajun seasoning together in a bowl. Set aside until ready to use.

  3. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler to low.

  4. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Remove the salmon from the marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Place salmon, skin side-down, and pineapple, onto the sheet and brush with the glaze.

  5. Broil in the preheated oven until salmon easily flakes with a fork and reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (62 degrees C), 13 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If using skinless salmon fillets, flip halfway through marinating time.
