This simple glaze recipe goes well with more than just salmon; it complements snapper, halibut, chicken or even tofu very nicely. You can wisk this glaze together in less than 2 minutes and have your fish baking in fewer than 5 once you’ve got your oven hot. This glaze is both sweet and hot, which both B and I really enjoy. If you don’t care for ginger, simply omit – I’m pretty sure it would still taste darn good without it. I often make this dish the night before or earlier in the day because it reheats so well. Salmon is such a ‘forgiving’ fish, I really should cook with it more often. Serve garnished with thinly sliced green onion, oven roasted asparagus and steamed brown jasmine rice. If it’s warm where you are right now or you are making this dish in the summer, throw it on the grill outside for a special treat.
What You Need:
1 lb salmon
1/8 cup soy sauce
¼ cup pure maple syrup (or your favorite syrup)
1 tsp minced ginger (simply omit if you’re not a fan)
2 tsp minced garlic (or 2 large cloves grated or minced – to taste)
Sriracha to taste (optional)
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 350* and combine all ingredients, except salmon, in a bowl and wisk.
Coat a foil lined baking sheet with cooking spray and cover fish with most of the glaze, reserving a Tbs or two for after it has baked. Bake fish for 18-22 minutes, depending on the thickness, or until fish flakes with a fork in the thickest spot. Pour remaining glaze over fish.
