Maple Glazed Salmon


Out of all the new Salmon Recipes I've made in the past few weeks this has been my favorite by far. I will definitely be making this one many more times. In my preparation of salmon I have learnt a few things- Salmon tastes the best after it has marinated in a sauce of some sort. It really does something amazing. Another thing I noticed is that salmon is really delicious when it is cooked with a sweet element and a sour element. I really dislike the typical sweet and sour salmon but that's just a personal choice. What I mean is if it has an ingredient that's sweet  and one that's sour or really salty it's a really good balance and tastes yum. You will find that I usually follow that guideline.  If you are one of my blog readers then you will know that I love salmon and don't really eat any other fish. So when I find a good salmon that I love I get really excited!

- 2 Medium Slices Baby Salmon Fillet
 1/4 Cup Maple Syrup
1 Tsp. Olive Oil
1 Tsp Fresh Chopped Garlic
2 Tsps. Soy Sauce
1/2 Tsp Sesame Oil
1 Tsp Sugar
1 Tsp White Vinegar
Spice Rub- Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper in even amounts

Combine Maple Syrup, Olive Oil, Fresh Garlic- (I like the jarred polander kind), soy sauce, sesame oil, sugar and vinegar in a bowl or containers. Lay the Salmon in it skin side up. Marinate for 1/2 hour-2 hours. Lay the Salmon skin side down in a greased baking pan. Pour the sauce it was marinating in over it letting it fall to the sides as well a little. Combine spice rub ingredients in small dish. Sprinkle over salmon and pat down over the flesh. Bake on 400 for 20 minutes for a nice crispy top and soft inside. Serve cold or warm. I served it on a bed of iceberg lettuce- checked, cleaned and torn up in medium pieces.
