Maple Syrup Soy Sauce Salmon

This is one of my favorite ways to fix salmon-- it is easy and delicious. It is from Bob Blumer's Off the Eaten Path, a fun cookbook that is worth purchasing. It has great ideas and fun recipes like a salmon you wrap in foil and cook in the dishwasher and lemongrass shrimp you cook on a car engine. Plus it has this great salmon recipe.

Maple Syrup Soy Sauce Salmon

3 Parts Pure Maple Syrup
1 Part Soy Sauce
Salmon Fillets, Cut into 4-6 Ounce (113 g to 170 g) Pieces
Lots and Lots of Coarsely Ground Black Pepper

Combine 3 parts maple syrup and one part soy sauce in a plastic bag and add the salmon. Marinade over night up to 48 hours turning the salmon every so often (The recipe says marinade at least 4 hours-- but its best if you can marinade it overnight).

Marinating salmon

Once it is done marinating:

Preheat the oven to 500 F/260 C/Gas Mark 10.
Rub oil or spray with oil spray a sheet of aluminum foil or cookie sheet.
Place cracked pepper on a small plate and dredge one side of the salmon through the pepper.

A plate of cracked pepper
Place salmon pepper side up on the foil or cookie sheet.

Bake on the top rack of the oven for 7 minutes.

That's all of there is to it.
