Glazed Salmon Steaks

A Few Words…

Salmon is one of those foods that doesn’t need a lot of preparation in order to be tasty. I find that switching up spices and adding different condiments make an ordinary fish, extraordinary.

I don’t buy salmon steaks often, but I love the thickness and texture of salmon cut this way. I decided to make a marinade for salmon and we had it on Friday night.

This is really yummy and delicious the next day too, if you have leftovers. If you prefer salmon fillets, try this marinade for a nice change. You can also easily bake this is the oven!

Serves 4


  • 4 salmon steaks
  • 1/4 cup low sodium tamari
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tbs. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. red chili pepper flakes


In a small bowl whisk together the tamari, maple syrup, sesame oil, grated ginger, garlic and red chili pepper flakes. I freeze fresh ginger and grate it frozen. The texture is very fine and blends well into dishes called for grated ginger!

Place the salmon steaks in a big ziploc baggie with the marinade, making sure to coat the salmon. Leave to marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.

Grill on a hot bbq until the salmon is cooked through, about 4-5 minutes per side. Be sure to brush the remaining marinade on each side while grilling.

Alternatively you can bake the salmon in a preheated oven set to 400°F for about 20 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork.
