Dinner Done! – Maple Salmon


if teriyaki is your usual go-to, try this one instead.

Leah’s mother has been making this salmon recipe for a while, and then her sister began making it. It’s a favorite, and honestly, no one remembers where it originated! It’s more up-to-date than teriyaki, but anyone who typically loves that sweet Asian flavor will love this, too.

  • 1 side of salmon
  • 3 scallions, sliced

    Maple Sauce:

    • 1⁄2 cup maple syrup
    • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
    • 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
    • 1⁄2 tbsp honey
    • 1 tsp mustard
    • 3⁄4 tsp crushed black pepper
    1. In a saucepan, combine all sauce ingredients and bring it to a boil.
    2. Place scallions on the salmon. Pour sauce over the salmon. Marinate
      for 1⁄2 hour.
    3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for 1⁄2 hour.

Tip: Preparing less salmon? Don’t need all the sauce? You can freeze it! Or prepare a double batch so it’s ready to go the next time you make it.

Yield: 6-8 servings
