Servings 6


  • large skillet with a lid
  • tongs
  • Whisk


  • 6 salmon fillets
  • ½ cup real maple syrup
  • ½ cup stone-ground Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbs. ghee


  • Melt the ghee in a large skillet on medium heat.
  • Add the salmon fillets to the skillet skin side down and cover the skillet with the lid.
  • Sear fillets for about 8 minutes on the skin side.
  • Then using tongs, flip the fillets over and sear for about 5 minutes.
  • While the fillets are searing, whisk together the maple syrup and stone-ground Dijon mustard.
  • Turn the fillets back over to the skin side and use a fork to test for doneness. (Fish is done when the fillet flakes easily when pulled with a fork).
  • If the fillets are done, pour the maple syrup/Dijon mixture all over them coating them well.
  • Heat through and spoon the glaze from the bottom of the pan onto the fillets and serve.

This recipe makes 6 servings. In the video, you see me making 4 fillets. That's because there were only 3 of us home for dinner the day I made this recipe. I saved 2 fillets and the rest of the glaze to prepare for lunch the next day.
