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:

½ cup maple syrup

5  garlic cloves, crushed

¼ cup soy sauce

½ tbsp honey

1 tsp    mustard

¾ 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 ½ hour.
  3. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake for ½ 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
