Maple Roasted Salmon



and MAPLE BOURB0N SAUCE serves 4
Maple Roasted Salmon

The legendary Maple Salmon was a favorite at Horizons long before I appeared on the scene. It's very West coast and definitely one of our signature dishes. Although I may have modified it slightly over the years, it's basically still the original recipe.


4 7oz (200g) salmon fillets 4
2 Tbsp. clarified butter 30 ml
1 cup maple syrup 240 ml
1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice 240 ml
2 Tbsp. lemon juice 30 ml
1 Tbsp. ground black pepper 15 ml
2 Tbsp. liquid honey 30 ml
1 recipe maple bourbon sauce 1 recipe
1 recipe jumbo shrimp & vegetable skewers 1 recipe
  1. Combine the maple syrup, orange juice, lemon juice, black pepper and honey.
  2. Marinate the salmon fillets in the maple syrup mixture for at least 6 hours or even overnight. Remove salmon from marinade.
  3. Heat the clarified butter in a large oven proof skillet and sear the salmon fillets for about 1 minute. Transfer to a 400 F (200 C) oven and bake for about 8 minutes or until firm to the touch.
  4. Serve immediately with maple bourbon sauce and grilled jumbo shrimp & vegetable skewers.
