Maple chipotle glazed salmon is a delicious and easy dinner to try out this week! It’s sweet, smokey, and so flavorful, and pairs perfectly with roasted brussels sprouts and a side of rice.
Simple weeknight dinner
Salmon is a weekly staple in our house. It’s packed with protein and healthy omega-3 fats, and can be prepared in endless ways. This smokey maple chipotle salmon recipe is simple to make, and packs in so much delicious flavor.
I served it with a side of brown rice, then turned the leftovers into the viral salmon rice bowl that’s floating around TikTok.
Maple Chipotle Sauce
The maple chipotle sauce is sweet, tangy, and the perfect marinade for nearly any protein. It’s made with just a few simple ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need-
- chipotle peppers in adobo sauce– you can find this in most large grocery stores in the canned food section, or in the ethnic aisle. The peppers + the adobo sauce add the most delicious flavor. Plus the leftovers make the most delicious chipotle mayo!
- pure maple syrup
- lime juice
- smoked paprika
- and a pinch of cinnamon for good measure
I love pairing this dish with roasted brussels sprouts, but you can swap any vegetable you prefer. Depending on the size and thickness of your salmon, this dish will be ready in just 30 minutes!
I love this simple recipe because it has the perfect combination of flavors. The cinnamon adds a subtle sweet flavor, and balances out the spice really well.
It’s the perfect simple recipe to try for an easy weeknight dinner!
