Wow, this salmon was so moist and flavorful! I really loved the flavor or the maple syrup and soy sauce. It helped to balance the black pepper. Even though we all love black pepper, it was just a bit too much for us. I'll do this again but just liberally sprinkle the salmon with the black pepper. I love how simple and quick this recipe was and will definitely cook it again! Thanks for posting. Made for the Spring Pick A Chef event in the contests/events forum.

Very simple and tasty. I saved the marinade, boiled it and drizzled it over the finished salmon. Emphasis on easy!
