My sister found this recipe when she was in college. I don’t know where she got it from but it’s really good. It’s very simple and with little hands-on time. Who would have thought maple syrup and salmon go well together?
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- Pinch of salt
- Pepper, to taste
- 1 lb salmon
- In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, salt and pepper.
- Cut the salmon into 4 fillets and place them in a 9×13-inch baking dish. Pour the maple syrup over the mixture, making sure to coat the salmon well. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and marinate the salmon in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning the fillets halfway through.
- Preheat the oven to 400F (200C).
- Uncover the baking dish and set it in the preheated oven. Bake the salmon for 20 minutes until easily flaked with fork.
Comments: It’s as easy as that! I left the skin on the salmon but you can bake it skinless as well. I made the spicy sweet potato wedges but this salmon would also be fantastic with rice.
