Maple Soy Salmon
For Valentine’s day this year, I made this. I can say this is the BEST salmon I have ever made. I typically do steak because I love making it. I used my honey on this if you have no idea what I’m talking about, check this out: Honey Garlic.
To start off, I bought a whole fillet of salmon from wally world. It was the fresh, never frozen kind. If you’re a little skeptic about your fish/meats and where you buy them, I promise you, it was fresh and fantastic. You can still create amazing fish dishes with frozen fish. I wanted to splurge a little for V-day.
*I cut the fish into smaller pieces because some pieces were fattier than others and I didn’t want the fish to dry out.
Maple Soy Marinade/Glaze:
I marinaded the fish in this for 20 minutes before, but you can leave it in longer. *psst… The longer the better.*
- 1/4 cup of soy
- 3 Tbsp of pure maple syrup
- 2 Tbsp of oil
- salt (to taste)
- pepper (to taste)
- two garlic cloves minced
- 2 Tbsp of brown sugar after the fish is out.
Once the fish was done marinating I put the glaze into the pan and added the brown sugar. I let it boil for a couple minutes until it was thicker and stuck to the back of the spoon.
I put the salmon onto a foil-lined pan. I then added salt and pepper to the fish liberally, and some oil too. I put the fish into the 400-degree oven and let it cook for 20-25 minutes depending on how thick your fish is or until it becomes flaky. I sprinkled parsley on top and it was all done.
You can use this maple-soy marinade for chicken, steak, veggies, and many other things! It’s very versatile, and you don’t have to keep cooking the same thing over and over again.
