non-aerosol cooking spray
4 (4-5 oz.) fresh salmon or steelhead trout fillets or 1 whole fillet weighing 1 ¼ to 1 ½ lbs.
1 tsp. granulated garlic powder or ¼ tsp. per fillet
tsp. lemon pepper seasoning or 1/8 tsp. per fillet
1/3 to 1/2 cup real maple syrup or 11/2 to 2 tbsp. per fillet


1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Cover a large regular or nonstick baking sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.

2. Place fillet(s) on prepared baking sheet, skin side down. Season with garlic powder and lemon pepper and cover each with 1 to 1 ½ tbsp. of syrup. If using whole fillet, season, and cover with ¼ to 1/3 cup of maple syrup.

3. Place in oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on thickness or until meat flakes apart easily with an internal temperature of 145 F. Remove from oven and serve each fillet topped with any maple glaze remaining on baking sheet or a little additional maple syrup, if desired.
