Low Carb Grilled Maple Soy Salmon

I always try and cook things that are in season, they are so much more flavorful than when it’s out of season and frozen. I live near the Great Lakes and fish are almost always in season. You don’t have to be near a lake or any body of water to get great cuts of salmon.

This low-carb grilled Maple Soy Salmon recipe can be made with salmon steaks or salmon fillets. It is totally up to the cook. If you don’t have fresh salmon, no worries, this is good with frozen as well. If you already have a Diabetic-Friendly Pantry, you’re on your way to easy Diabetic Friendly cooking.

If you like maple soy but aren’t a fish lover and are not interested in maple soy salmon, you can easily use chicken or pork. This recipe performs well with chicken breasts and pork tenderloin or pork chops. Just substitute the meats and leave the glaze as directed. It’s a pretty versatile marinade.

About the Ingredients

Walden Farms Maple Syrup

I used the Walden Farms zero-calorie, zero-carb Maple Walnut syrup in this recipe. If it is not available in your area, you can also use the ED Smith low-sugar syrup or any low-sugar syrup. if you aren’t concerned with counting carbs or watching your sugar intake, just switch out the syrup to regular maple syrup. It will change your nutritional value but doesn’t affect the taste. The Walden Farms syrups I have pictured here have great taste and consistency. Walden Farms also has maple bacon syrup and plain pancake syrup if you prefer. All are zero-calorie, zero-carb.

Where to buy Walden Farms products.

Walden Farms products are available in most health food stores, some grocery stores, stores that sell ideal protein products and online in Canada and the US. Products are also available through the links below.

The Soy Sauce

You can use any brand you like as well as a low-sodium version. Most brands of Soy Sauce have similar nutritional values. Soya Sauce and Soy Sauce are the same thing. Depending on the manufacturer and country of origin, dictate the name of the product.
