  1. Marinate the 2 salmon fillets in mixture of 1/3 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup of soy sauce for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Remove from refrigerator, spoon out marinade into a saucepan and reduce over medium-low heat until you're left with about half the original volume (about 10 minutes).
  3. Broil the fillets in a lightly oiled pan for about four minutes, skin side up.
  4. Flip the fillets over and brush the flesh side liberally with the reduced marinade.
  5. Sprinkle sesame seeds over top and broil for another 4 minutes or until the surface is caramelized and the salmon is no longer translucent in the centre.
