Maple-Bourbon Glazed Salmon

I am a big Salmon lover, especially during the Summertime. So, here is a great recipe I found and tried it. It is absolutely delishious and has a slight sweetness with the Maple flavor and definely use the Bourbon. Hope you enjoy!



  • 1/3
    cup pure maple syrup or maple-flavored syrup
  • 1/3
    cup orange juice
  • 3
    Tbsp. bourbon whiskey or orange juice
  • 4
    4- to 5-oz. skinless, salmon fillets
  • 1/4
    cup coarsely chopped pecans or walnuts
directions1. Preheat broiler. For syrup glaze, in a small saucepan combine maple syrup, orange juice, and whiskey. Cook, uncovered, over medium heat while preparing salmon.

2. Lightly sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Place on a lightly greased broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 5 minutes. Remove 2 tablespoons glaze and brush on all sides of salmon. Turn salmon and broil 5 minutes longer or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.

3. Stir pecans into remaining glaze; heat on high for about 5 minutes or until glaze reaches the consistency of syrup. Serve salmon topped with pecan syrup. Makes 4 servings.
