Maple Miso Glazed Salmon is our go-to meal that is big on flavor and makes cleanup a breeze!

Has this ever happened to you? You’re finishing up a delicious meal with family, friends, or totally solo, when your eyes drift from your plate and fall on a kitchen that is in complete disarray. We’ve been there, and that’s why we are such HUGE fans of sheet pan dinners!

This Maple Miso Glazed Salmon is the perfect dish to save you time and energy when it comes to cleanup. It also happens to be delicious and packed with healthy Omega-3 fatty acids.

We know that Seafood isn’t for everyone. That’s why we strive to create recipes that taste just as good if you opt to go plant-based. Just substitute the fish for your favorite firm tofu or tempeh and follow the cooking instructions below.

Here are some of our favorite sheet pan recipe ideas that go great with Maple Miso Glazed Salmon!

The Recipe

Serves 2



1 pound boneless salmon fillet

1 pound carrots

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

For the marinade/glaze

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1 tablespoon white miso

1/2 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon olive oil, or ghee

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a large ziplock bag, combine maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, miso, and soy sauce and stir until miso has dissolved.

Cut salmon into two portions, and place in the bag with the marinade. Seal the bag and place salmon in the fridge for marinating for at least 30 minutes and up to 2 hours.

Step 2

Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan, and cook carrots until they are slightly tender, about 10 minutes.

Step 3

Place salmon and carrots on a lightly oiled baking sheet and roast in the oven until carrots are lightly charred, and salmon registers 115 to 125 degrees internal temperature for a medium-rare to medium center. Salt and pepper to taste

Step 4

Pour marinade in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add ghee and reduce until glaze has thickened and coats the bottom of a spoon. About 5 minutes.

Plate salmon and carrots and top with glaze and garnish with fresh dill and lemon wedges.
