The maple syrup glaze in this recipe will give the smoked salmon a nice crusty surface that will lock in the juices and give it a mild, sweet flavor. 


  • 4 small salmon fillets (about 5 ounces each)
  • 1 cup maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Clean and remove any skin from salmon fillets.

  3. Place in a shallow baking dish and pour maple syrup over top. Turn to coat evenly.

  4. Sprinkle each side with salt and black pepper.

  5. Cover and refrigerator for 24 hours.

  6. Prepare smoker. Place fillets in a smoker at about 200F for about 1 1/2 hours.

  7. When you are ready to remove the salmon from the smoker, heat the butter in a skillet.

  8. Place fillets gently in skillet for about 2 minutes per side. This creates a nice glaze over the surface of the salmon.

  9. Serve and enjoy.
