Serves: 4Hands-on: 10 minutesTotal: 25 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 4


  • 1 Tbsp. grapeseed oil
  • 1⁄3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1⁄4 tsp. garlic
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 4 salmon steaks (6 oz.)


  • Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray a baking dish, just large enough to hold the 4 salmon steaks, with cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together oil, maple syrup, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  • Place the salmon steaks in the baking dish and pour sauce over the top. Flip the steaks over a few times so the sauce soaks into both sides of the fish.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, checking after 10 minutes to see if the fish is cooking too fast. Fish is done when it flakes with a fork.
