Maple Glazed Salmon Bites with Apples and Chives

  • Prep Time: 10 m
  • Cook Time: 10 m
  • Total Time: 20 m
  • Servings:


  • 8 ounce salmon fillet cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 apples cored and sliced into half-moons
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 bunch fresh chives cut into 1-inch lengths


  1. Prepare the salmon by cubing it and tossing it in a bowl with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Prepare the apples and distribute them on a serving platter in a decorative manner.
  3. Pre-heat a non-stick skillet over high heat. Add the oil and when it is very hot, add the salmon and brown on all sides for 2 to 3 minutes. (If you have a press, you can gently press the salmon cubes while they cook to get a darker brown sear without over cooking.)
  4. Add the maple syrup to the pan and toss the salmon in the bubbling syrup until it starts to turn brown. Remove the pan from the heat immediately.
  5. Place a piece of salmon on each half-moon of apple and top with a crisscross of two pieces of chive. Serve warm or cold.

  1. What can I do to avoid the fact that the apples will turn dark within a fee minutes..??? a few drops of lemon over the apples will destroy the dish…thank you for your answer in advance..

    1. Hi Gloria. Try slicing the apples but keeping the apple slices together. Then, just separate them and garnish your appetizers at the last minute. In addition, try using one of the several varieties of apple that don’t brown very quickly, like Cameo, Gala, Cortland, Empire or Ambrosia.
