Swedish Maple Salmon

Recipe by januarybride
READY IN: 20mins


  • 12
    cup softened salted butter
  • 14
    teaspoon maple extract (Mapleine if you are in Sweden)
  • 2
    tablespoons brown sugar
  • 14
    teaspoon vanilla
  • 1
    tablespoon corn syrup (I used a light, lower calorie version and it worked great)
  • 1 12
    lbs atlantic salmon, cut into 4 servings
  • 8
    tablespoons chopped candied walnuts (may sub regular walnuts)


  • Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature.
  • Cream together first five ingredients with a hand mixer (or food processor) and leave at room temperature.
  • Preheat grill to medium (about 350-375 degrees).
  • Season with salt and coat with olive oil. Oil the grill. Place the salmon, skin side down, on the clean, preheated grill.
  • Cook the salmon for 5 minutes. As the salmon cooks it will turn from translucent orange to pink.
  • Turn the salmon over and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • NOTE: I cooked mine in the oven in a grill packet for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and it was perfect. I also remove the skin prior to cooking when I use an oven vs. the grill.
  • Remove salmon from the grill and put on individual serving plates (skin side down. .or you can remove the skin before serving).
  • Top each piece of salmon with a few dollops of the butter you made (this will melt and become your sauce) and top each with 2 T walnuts.
