Maple Butter Salmon – Dana Shortt Gourmet

Maple Butter Salmon

Oil + Vinegar – Pairing – Maple Butter:

  • ALL NATURAL BUTTER flavored olive oil
  • MAPLE dark balsamic vinegar


Maple Butter Salmon


  • 4, 6 oz boneless & skinless salmon filets (wild salmon is best)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons DANA’s All Natural Butter flavoured olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon DANA’s Maple dark balsamic vinegar
  • 1½ tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1½ teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1½ teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • optional: 1-2 teaspoons pureed chipotles in adobo sauce (use for a smoky/spicy flavour)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, mix together all of the ingredients except for the salmon.
  3. Brush the salmon filets with HALF of the sauce mixture.
  4. Preheat a medium, non-stick sauté pan over medium high heat. Once hot, add the salmon filets and cook for about 3 minutes or until seared on one side. Turn salmon filets over and cook for another two minutes or so.
  5. Transfer filets to a parchment-lined baking sheet and brush with additional sauce, if desired. Cook salmon for another 3-4 minutes or until cooked throughout.

Note: if using wide & thin salmon filets then you may not need to finish cooking them in the oven – you can likely cook them through by sautéing them for an additional few minutes in the pan.
