This is a great recipe, but by adding herbs and spices you like, it’s easy to adjust to the degree of spicy sweetness that pleases you. It can be used to bake or grill your salmon. If you grill, use fillets with the skin. If you bake your fillets, skinless fillets work well.
MAPLE SOY GLAZED SALMON
- 4 salmon fillets
- 1/4 cup Milton’s Own™ Maple Sugar
- 3 tbsp soy sauce NOTE: If you use low sodium soy sauce, add salt to your tastes
- 2 cloves garlic; minced (or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder)
- Freshly ground black pepper and chopped green onions (optional)
- Whisk together Milton’s Own™ Maple Sugar, soy sauce, and garlic.
Place salmon into a baking dish, then pour soy-maple mixture evenly over salmon. Rub in if necessary.
- Marinate salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes. After 15 minutes, gently turn salmon pieces.
- When you turn the salmon, start preheating the oven to 400°F.
- Grease (using a cooking spray is best) a 13” x 9” baking dish and transfer marinated salmon to greased dish
NOTE: Save the marinade to make a glaze.
Bake until salmon is cooked through (approximately 15 minutes).
- While the salmon is baking, pour the saved marinade into a small saucepan. Over medium-high heat, bring mixture to a boil, stirring frequently. Once it reaches a boil, reduce heat slightly, stirring frequently, and allow it to thicken.
NOTE: Should reduce to about 1/4 cup.
- Serve salmon warm. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the maple soy glaze over top of each filet. If desired, serve with black pepper and green onions.
NOTE: If grilling: start with skin side up. Watch the side of the fillet for color to lighten. When lightened area reaches halfway, carefully turn salmon over. Grill to the desired degree of doneness.
