Maple Syrup Salmon, it's a keeper!

A delicious, simple and quick recipe submitted for Julie's "I Do" Cook Book. A perfect recipe for a newbie bride just starting to explore in the kitchen. My very favorite cousin, who let's just say isn't fond of spending too much time in the kitchen, and happens to be celebrating a birthday today, pulled this little gem out of her hat! Who knew?!?! This salmon recipe is absolutely delicious and it's as easy as it gets. The sweetness from the maple syrup combined with the slightly salty soy is a perfect combination. It reminds me of teriyaki salmon but with a delicious maple flavor. The fish is moist and melts in your mouth like butter. This one is a keeper!

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce (I use reduced sodium Tamari)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 pound salmon 

    Serves 2-4


    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
    1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients accept for salmon.
    2. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover and marinate for 20-30 minutes.
    3. Bake salmon uncovered for 15 minutes and broil for an additional 2-3 minutes to crisp the top. 
    Happy Birthday Cuz!
