If you like maple, this recipe is for you - the mildness of our wild sockeye salmon fillets is the perfect base for some sweet, Canadian maple syrup! A great dish anytime, but truly amazing in the spring with fresh maple syrup.
- 1/4 cup maple syrup - try it with "real" maple syrup!
- 2 tbsp soy sauce (or gluten free alternative)
- 1 lrg garlic clove, minced
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper
- 4 ButcherBox.ca wild sockeye salmon fillets, skin on
- 2 green onions, just the greens, minced for garnish
- In a small bowl combine the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, salt and pepper, mixing until well blended.
- Place salmon fillets, skin side down, in a shallow glass baking dish, coat well with maple syrup mixture. Cover tightly and place into refrigerator to marinate for 30 minutes, turning the fillets over at the 15 minute mark. **Don't marinate seafood for more than 30 minutes - it can start to "cook" after that time, resulting in a drier, less tasty meal.
- Preheat oven to 400F, remove baking dish from refrigerator and uncover
- Place baking dish with salmon fillets and maple syrup mixture in preheated oven and bake uncovered until fish flakes evenly with a fork. Serve with minced green onion as a garnish
