When I first met my Lover, I made a comment that I didn’t like maple syrup all that much, and his immediate reaction was along the lines of, “That is changing right now.” So, we made a quick trip to the grocery store, and after that I tasted real maple syrup for the first time in my life. It was delicious! I immediately amended to saying, “I don’t like high fructose corn syrup with maple flavoring,” and ever since then I’ve made a habit out of consuming maple syrup whenever possible.
So, it was pretty exciting when I found this recipe at allrecipes.com.
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound salmon
- In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.
- Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.
I added in some ginger in addition to the recipe, and the result was exquisite. This is a definite must for people who love fish.
