Maple-Bourbon Baked Salmon Makes For A Great Seafood Night With A Twist


  • 1 pound salmon, with skin
  • 2/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


1. Preheat oven to 400ยบ F.

2. In a medium bowl, combine maple syrup, bourbon, orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, cayenne, salt, and pepper.

3. Place salmon in a shallow baking dish. Add liquid mixture to dish, submerging fillet; refrigerate and marinate for 30 minutes.

4. Drain most of marinade from baking dish, and reserve. Bake salmon for 10-15 minutes (adjust cooking time depending on thickness of fillet and desired doneness).

5. While salmon cooks, pour marinade into sauce pan. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and let simmer until liquid thickens into a glaze-like consistency, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat and top salmon with glaze.

6. Serve immediately and enjoy!
