Maple Salmon

Besides being delicious, salmon is an exceptional source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Fish (salmon) is also a good source of protein and does not have the high saturated fat that fatty meat products do.

So tonight I thought I would try baking Maple Salmon…

  • Maple Salmon
    • 1/4 C maple syrup
    • 2 Tbsp soy sauce
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
    • 1/8 tsp black pepper
    • 1 lb 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 marinade salmon in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, turning once.
    • Preheat oven to 400°F
    • Place baking dish in oven and bake salmon uncovered for 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with fork.

The salmon fillets are marinaded now so into the oven they go…

And 20 minutes later out they come…

Maple Salmon was simple to prepare and quite tasty. The maple syrup adds a nice, sweet flavor to the salmon fillets, while the garlic is making them happy, happy happy! The crispy, dark edges were a bonus.

If I could do it again, I would have grilled the salmon instead of baking it. Mainly because the pan gets pretty crazy with baked on maple madness, not because the outcome wasn’t tasty.

Next sale on salmon I’m going for it…

  1. Maybe try lining the baking dish with foil. I’ve done that before for easy cleanup. Or would that affect the baking time?

  2. Sarah – yes, foil-lined pans are awesome…I’m not sure if it affects the baking time much, but I am a firm believer in any easy cleanup method. I wish I had foil-lined this pan! Too late now though..

  3. mmmm and it was goood.

  4. ryan – anytime I can get you to eat fish, it’s a “goood” thang, surely!

  5. Salmon, Butter, Fresh Dill, Lemon Pepper, on a piece of tinfoil, broiled. Can’t lose. P.S. May 6th huh? Better get Posting, Chef! What’s in my pot? Whole lotta downtime… hehe. Love the site. Miss the posts. Come back, please?

  6. Again you post another disgusting looking/tasting recipe so I am wondering who taught you to cook? Maple salmon? Did you just dream that mess up one night and decide it sounds good? IT does not let me tell you! You should stick to the basics like pb&j and white rice because your skills in the kitchen are SEVERELY lacking. Another “F” for you! Go McCain/Palin!
