Maple Glazed Salmon
I did not become a fan of maple till I graduated from the artificially flavored maple syrup of my youth to the caramelized liquid gold actually tapped from maple trees. Depending on the season it is harvested, the subtle flavors of real maple syrup can also include nutty, vanilla, coffee, floral or spicy. It also contains more than 50 antioxidants.
Maple syrup enhances so many recipes, not just pancakes, and waffles, but even vegetables like these Maple Pecan Roasted Brussels Sprouts! Check out the Pure Canadian Maple Syrup site for all sorts of information and recipes. Then grab your real maple syrup and make this quick recipe for Maple Glazed Salmon.
A Divine Sweet and Salty Marinade!
I love the mixture of sweet and salty paired with salmon in this Maple Glazed Salmon recipe, so maple syrup with a splash of soy sounded like a wonderful flavor combination. Ginger and garlic added a bit of zing, and I’m thinking some red pepper flakes would have been nice as well. I’ve updated the photos with a mango, pineapple and strawberry salsa served atop the salmon. Another beautiful pairing with this Maple Glazed Salmon dish. Bill went to work raving about this recipe, and the lightened up Fettuccine Alfredo with which it was served. Stay tuned for that recipe.
