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.

Ingredient Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

I made this with no alterations. I did just place the wedge of lemon on the fish as I couldn't find any instructions about what to do with it. Served with fresh green beans on the side, and it made a nice supper. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

Used fairly thin boneless-skinless pink salmon fillets, but soy sauce/maple marinade as if for larger portions of fish - so they really soaked in it - but reduced glaze to fit salmon & pineapple portions; served with broiled asparagus as a quick light low fat supper. We enjoyed it, & I will keep this recipe on file for just such a supper! Read More
