Get the Skillet!

Sweet and savory! We cooked this salmon in the Copper Skillet from KitchenAid with Teflon™ nonstick coatings. We appreciated not having to scrub off any of the syrupy glaze; it washed right off the surface of the pan.



1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
3 small garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
1-1/2 pounds wild Alaskan salmon filets
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 pound shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
2 tablespoons green onions
Pea shoots, optional for garnish

Heat In a small bowl, whisk the glaze up with the maple syrup, lemon juice, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Drizzle glaze over the filets, reserving 1/4 cup. Place the salmon in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Pour the sesame oil into a skillet with Teflon™ nonstick coating. Sauté the mushrooms until lightly brown; remove from the pan. Remove the salmon from the fridge and let it warm up a few minutes. Place the pan back on the heat, on medium heat, and add the filets to the pan. Cook until lightly browned on both sides, about 8 minutes. Pour the reserved glaze over the top and add the chopped onions; pea shoots if desired. Return mushrooms to the pan; reheat; bring the pan to the table and serve.
