This fresh, flaky maple ginger grilled salmon recipe is an easy one to make thanks to a marinade made with minimal ingredients that packs a serious flavor punch! 


  • 1.5 pounds salmon⁠⠀
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced⁠⠀
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly grated ginger⁠ or ginger paste
  • 1/2 tablespoon sriracha ⁠(more or less to taste, depending on desired spice level) ⠀


  1. Whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce/coconut aminos, garlic, ginger and sriracha in a large bowl.
  2. Place salmon into the bowl and toss to coat in the marinade.
  3. Cover and let marinate for 30-60 minutes. (Note: I would not marinate this salmon for much more than an hour, as it seems to toughen the fish if left in the marinade too long.) ⁠⠀
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat. Place salmon directly on the grill and cover.
  5. Flip the salmon after 5-6 minutes and grill for an additional 5-8 minutes (possibly longer, depending on thickness of your salmon), or until salmon easily flakes with a fork.⁠⠀
