Paleo Maple Glazed Wild Salmon

Here’s a quick and easy way to make fantastic maple glazed salmon. The sauce is mildly sweet with a pungent kick. Most barbeque sauces are high in carbs and sugars. But if you use the zero-sugar sweeteners suggested, it makes a sweet glaze that is simply delicious and gives your blood sugar a break. I prefer to bake rather than barbecue, to avoid the carcinogens. This recipe is nightshade-free (no tomatoes or peppers) so it’s easy to digest. Serves 4

Paleo Maple Glazed Wild Salmon




  1. In a small bowl, stir together all the sauce ingredients.
  2. Put the salmon in a baking pan, and cover it completely with half of the sauce. Cover the pan and refrigerate 1 – 4 hours to marinate the salmon nicely. Pour the remaining half of the sauce into a bowl for basting.
  3. If broiling:
  4. Preheat the oven to broil (or you can bake at 400°F.)
  5. Place salmon, skin side down, on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Place the uncovered baking pan in the oven and bake 12 - 15 minutes about 4-inches away from the heat element. Open the oven, turn the salmon and using a brush or a large spoon, baste it with the sauce every 5 minutes.
  6. If baking:
  7. Bake about 25 minutes basting as needed or until the fish is firm but still tender all the way through.
  8. Garnish with parsley and lemon.
