The best salmon EVER!

Tuesday, June 03, 2008

Oh wow. My system is still having aftershocks since trying a recipe that my friend, Rossie, posted on her blog last week. Although salmon is my favorite fish, I don't love it. I eat it b/c it's good for you and it's not terrible. But prepared this way? Oh. My. Gorsh. I could have eaten an entire salmon prepared this way (although I didn't, of course! Just 3 ounces b/c I'm being a good girl). Try it. You won't regret it. And if you hate fish, this recipe just may make a convert out of you.

1 unit pure maple syrup or honey (I used the former but Rossie used honey and said it was wonderful)

1 unit soy sauce

2-4 cloves fresh minced garlic

I had (4) four-oz. pieces of salmon and I used 1/2 cup of syrup and soy sauce each (and 2 ginormous cloves of garlic) and that made a little too much so judge how much sauce you will need based on how much you're cooking. The amount I made would have been appropriate for at least two more pieces. It's better to have too much than not enough.

Marinate the salmon in this mixture for at least one hour before baking (I did two). Bake at 350 with the sauce dumped over it & pan covered with foil for 15-20 minutes (check to make sure it flakes easily--that means it's done). Serve with a spoonful of sauce (or three) drizzled over it. (It might be fun to thicken some with cornstarch and serve on the side.) If you're going to grill it, let it marinate at least four hours and put it on the grill with the skin side down. Then dig in and proceed to lapse into a salmon-induced state of euphoria. :)
