We eat salmon about once a week in our house. It’s quick and healthy, and most importantly something that I know everyone will eat. This is HUGE because my kids are one and three years old, and finding something that everyone will eat (with no complaints) isn’t always easy. Top that off with the fact that my husband, while he loves fish, used to hate salmon (too “fishy” he said). Well, this recipe made him a believer.
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (NOT pancake syrup!) or honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2-3 cloves minced garlic
12 ounces fresh or thawed salmon
Combine the first 3 ingredients in a gallon-size ziploc bag, shake it up, and then add the salmon.
Allow to marinate in the refrigerator for an hour, turning after half an hour.
Pour the salmon and the marinade into a baking dish and bake in a 350 degree oven, covered with foil, for 15 minutes.
The salmon is done when it flakes easily at the thickest part.
Enjoy! Makes (4) 3 ounce servings.
