This Maple & Mustard Roasted Salmon is packed full of flavor thanks to the maple syrup marinade. Well worth the extra time to prepare.
We try to eat Salmon at least once a week. What I like about salmon is that it usually takes less than 10 minutes to bake in the oven. This Maple & Mustard Roasted Salmon does require about 4 hours to marinate but only 8 minutes to bake.
It's important to note that your salmon fillets need to be unthawed before marinating them. If you buy your salmon already frozen, follow the directions on the package for the proper way to unthaw your salmon. It usually involves unthawing in the fridge or in a bowl of water. Unthawing time will vary based on the weight of the salmon fillet.
🌡️ Salmon Temperature
The FDA recommends cooking salmon to an internal temperature of 145°F, measured in the thickest part of the salmon fillets.
If this seems like too much work or you simply don't have that much time on your hands, check out my Confetti Salmon Steaks. If you are not sure what to serve with your salmon, check out my collection of Side Dishes. Personally I love my Zucchini with Corn Skillet with my Salmon.
