Baked Five Spice Maple Glazed Salmon And Eliza With Blueberries

With all of the salmon we’ve cooked, I can’t remember ever cooking it with an Asian flavor so when I saw Pam’s recipe for Five Spice Maple Glazed Salmon on her Pam’s Midwest Kitchen Korner blog I thought this would be a great first one to try.  Cindy did the cooking and followed the ingredients as written but she changed the directions including using a probe thermometer to cook it to an internal temp of 120F and brushed on more glaze each 20 degrees until she ran out of glaze.

Five Spice Maple Glazed Salmon - Lightly adapted from Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner


2-3 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons hoisin sauce

1 teaspoon dried ginger

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon five spice powder

S&P to taste

4 (6-ounces) salmon portions


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

2. Whisk together the first 7 ingredients in a bowl for the glaze.

3. Season the salmon with S&P

4. Place salmon fillets in a baking dish coated with cooking spray (We lined a pan with foil and did not spray it so the skin would stick to the foil and the flesh could easily be removed with a spatula slid between them).

5. Brush sauce on Pour sauce over salmon.

6. Bake for 15-20 minutes to desired internal temperature, basting occasionally until salmon flakes with a fork.

We sided it with some delicious broccoli (steamed then buttered and topped with grated Romano cheese), and leftover fried corn.

The salmon was a big hit with all three of us and the 120F internal was just right for our tastes – now I’m looking forward to our next Asian flavored version.  Thanks Pam for a delicious supper.

A couple of days before, Eliza brought her parents down for a visit, a meal, and so she could pick some blueberries - but she mostly just wanted to eat those that the others were picking.

Then she she fed some corn cobs to the cows.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. I have all 5 ingredients and salmon will try this tonight I love everything about this recipe

  2. The salmon looks and sounds tasty. Eliza is adorable.

  3. Larry, That salmon looked great and it was a healthy meal too. Love the photos of Eliza picking blueberries and especially feeding corn cobs to the cattle! Stay Safe and Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  4. I just wish we had corn cobs to feed the cows. Any day now our Colorado sweet corn should be in our markets. Those photos of Eliza are adorable. And the salmon looks great. I'll be giving that recipe a try.
