Maple Salmon

I promise our next post will be something without balsamic vinegar or fish (we just noticed that our taste buds have been a little one sided as of late). Hopefully you've enjoyed our cravings. If not, you have our apologies and a tantalizing preview of what is to come in a few days: chocolate zucchini bread.

But I couldn't turn down this simple fish recipe. The maple adds the distinct fall flavor that this season demands, yet it's still a light and healthy meal. Try serving with the Asian Pear Salad or Spinach Tortellini Salad.

We're also wondering how all you readers are feeling about our blog. Do you like what we've been making? Do you want more dinner? Less fish? More vegetarian? More meat? More dessert? Better labels? Or maybe you're indifferent? We'd love to know what you think (and if you don't feel like leaving a comment, try clicking the reactions). Is there anyone out there? Let us know someone is reading our blog!

Maple Salmon
Recipe adapted from
Pictures by Caroline
Serves 4

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound salmon
  1. In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, salt, and pepper.
  2. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator about 20 minutes, turning once.*
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  4. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.
*If you're in a hurry, you can get away with about 1o minutes or marinating.

Love it, love the salmon recipes, love the blog, love food!! I like how you post lots of veggie side dishes, how detailed your instructions are, and of course, the lovely photography! Sometimes the recipes are a little exotic/daunting to me, but I'm still excited to try plenty of them!

We're still here! Unfortunately, I haven't had much time to try new recipes lately, but I still like to store away the ideas. Some of my new "old favorites" are from this site - spinach salad, barbacoa pork, sweet and sour pork, chicken dhansak, naan bread.

Thanks for trying out all these things and letting us know how they work.

I like quick and easy, as is this recipe. Before this site, I did not have a lot of experience with fish. I appreciate the fish recipes.

Yeah, the fish recipes are good. We've tried a lot of the stuff here. The pasta recipes are nice also. We'll always welcome more of them.
