What To Do With Maple Butter?

i purchased some maple butter at whole foods today on the advice of the butcher who recommended using it as part of a glaze for either salmon or chicken.

i've got some salmon... anyone got suggestions?

i couldn't find a pic or description of the brand i bought, but here's a competitor...

it's just maple syrup whipped into a butter-like spread.

i'm wondering... just how can i use it on a maple-soy glaze for salmon?

Just whisk some soy sauce into it and that will do it. What kind of salmon do you have? And is it a whole fish or filleted?

Seriously though, you have a piece of heaven there. Enjoy every morsel of it.

Sorry, I'm a serious maple addict. I'm absolutely green with envy over here.

Could of sworn I had posted in here, oh well....


I had stated, your butcher is on the right track. I would baste your salmon with it. We use to do a maple giger glazed salmon, on a cedar plank. It was great. If you add a little oarange and cilantro, it is a nice addition.

i'm in houston, texas and i have LOTS of seafood options... but the best i've found so far is fresh, never frozen, wild sockeye salmon-either in fillets or cut in steaks.

there's no need to be green with envy... just get to whole foods and buy some even though it's NOT cheap.

I don't buy maple butter because I would have to share it. I know...that sounds awful doesn't it? I have maple coffee that I jealously guard. I'm weird.

I think sockeye is by far the nicest type of salmon, and it really doesn't need much in the way of help for flavour, so be modest in what you baste on it. Good luck and make sure you tell us how it turned out.

From what I could find - Maple Butter is simply Maple Syrup cooked down to the consistency of a spread. I could see where this would have the benefit of not being as runny as syrup in some applications - such as in a glaze.

You could also eat it out of a jar with a spoon, just as any true nutella lovers would do...
