I'm a Canadian girl, raised on real maple syrup. I like it so much I thought I'd try it on my favorite fish. This recipe will feed our family of 4. Both my older son and my husband will have seconds. We're serving it with steamed broccoli and roasted potatoes. This recipe is a Meals Maven exclusive.
680 g Salmon Portions (6 pieces)
1/4 c. no. 1 medium maple syrup
1 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1/8 c. soy sauce
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp black sesame seeds
6 green onions
Mix syrup, sugar, soy sauce, and onion powder together. Place thawed salmon portions into marinade. Flip periodically, making sure all salmon gets the flavour steeped in. Marinade for at least 1 hr. Don't forget to practice food safety! Marinade in the refrigerator!
Preheat oven to 350*F. Line a baking sheet with foil, and lay salmon across the sheet. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Slice green onions in half and lay across each salmon piece. Bake for 10 mins at 350*, then increase the heat to 425*.
Cook until salmon flakes, 20-30 minutes in total.
Verdict: First son said "Great!" Second son didn't give me any useful words, but did convey that he thought it was awful. I'm not surprised. Husband said "Really good. Almost candied".
So there you go. We'll be making this again.
