Glazed Salmon and veggies
The entire family will enjoy this simple one-pan salmon and vegetables with maple glaze. And there are only 3 ingredients in the maple glaze!
Simply put, it’s one of those meals that you can always enjoy.
Salmon with a maple glaze cooked on a sheet pan is incredibly easy. The salmon is coated with the three-ingredient glaze, which has been prepared and baked. Actually, that’s all you have to do.
Do not bother about calculating cook times because we have included instructions for roasting the vegetables simultaneously. Although we kept them straightforward by simply tossing them in some olive oil and spice, you could easily glaze some of the vegetables as well. If you want to make more glaze, simply make more of it.
You could also just prepare the salmon with a maple glaze and serve it with a salad and dinner bread. Tasty and straightforward.
How to make the maple glaze for salmon?
It’s quite simple to make a maple glaze for salmon. Only 3 items are required: maple syrup, soy sauce, and garlic. If you don’t have any or don’t like garlic, you could even make it with only two ingredients, and it would still be delicious.
How long do I need to cook salmon in the oven?
Salmon should be cooked in the oven at 425 degrees for 15 to 18 minutes. Most salmon, in my experience, cooks in 15 minutes at 425F, but if you have a particularly thick piece, it might take a few more minutes.
The salmon fillet’s thickest part should easily flake with a fork to indicate that it is cooked. Avoid overcooking your fish since it will get dry.
Tips for preparing this dish:
- In this recipe for maple glazed salmon on a sheet pan, you can easily swap out the vegetables. Use whatever you choose; however, broccoli, carrots, and brussels sprouts are great. The salmon and brussels sprouts go in after the broccoli and carrots because it takes them about 25 minutes to roast. Plan ahead if you prefer roasted potatoes with your fish because they take around 40 minutes to prepare.
- Make sure your glaze contains just pure maple syrup.
- Even while you might choose to drizzle the maple glaze only on the salmon, you can certainly prepare more and drizzle it on some vegetables as well.
- In this recipe, we coat the salmon with half the glaze before roasting and the remaining glaze right before serving. After that, we broil the salmon to slightly caramelize the glaze.

Serving size: 4
Prep time: up to 15 min.
Cook time: 25 min.
Total: 40 min.
Category: main course
- 8 ounces of carrots, about 3 medium
- 8 ounces of broccoli florets
- 1 pound of brussels sprouts
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil, divided
- 1 teaspoon of kosher salt, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon of coarse black pepper, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
- 2 pounds of salmon
- 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce
- 2 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon of minced fresh parsley (optional)
- Set the oven’s temperature and preheat to 425 F. Put parchment paper on two baking sheets.
- Carrots should be cut into pieces measuring approximately 2 inches by 1/2 inch, then cut in half or quarters lengthwise.
- Toss the broccoli florets and carrots with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the garlic powder in a big dish (or right on the sheet pan).
- Place them in the preheated oven after spreading them out on one of the sheet pans. Set a 10-minute timer.
- Remove the sprouts’ stem ends, then cut them in half lengthwise, removing any extra outer leaves as you go.
- Add the remaining 1/4 teaspoon of pepper, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the brussels sprouts.
- On one prepared sheet pan, distribute them over half of the surface.
- On the other half of your sheet pan, arrange the salmon filets with the skin-side down.
- Combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, and garlic in a small bowl.
- Onto the salmon, brush half of the maple glaze.
- When the timer sounds, add the second sheet pan to the oven, placing it on the top rack that is in the center of the oven and relocating the carrots and broccoli to the rack immediately below it. This second sheet pan should include the salmon and brussels sprouts.
- Roast for about 15 – 18 minutes, or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork and an instant-read thermometer registers 140°F in the thickest portion.
- The carrots and broccoli should be taken out of the oven when the timer sounds and covered with foil to keep them warm.
- The salmon should be broiled for a further 1-2 minutes, or until the glaze is bubbling, after turning the broiler to high. Broiling the salmon and brussels sprouts together for a few minutes will be good.
- If preferred, top everything with finely chopped fresh parsley before serving.
