Serve wilted spinach, roasted new potatoes and a glass of stout or full bodied Chardonnay, like Cave Spring or Penfold's Koonunga Hill.
- 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.
- 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).
- Broil the fillets in a lightly oiled pan for about four minutes, skin side up.
- Flip the fillets over and brush the flesh side liberally with the reduced marinade.
- 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.
I'm a 35-year-old bachelor with limited cooking experience, and even I can cook this dish! It's a terrific, very easy salmon recipe, even without the sesame seeds -- I have always left out the sesame seeds only because I never have any in the house. The longer you marinate the salmon, the better it tastes. I have marinated it for as little as an hour and as long as 24 hours and it always tastes great, but longer is better. I highly recommend this recipe. Enjoy!
This is very simple and extremely good. Had every thing on hand. I used the left over, reduced marinade on green beans, delish!
It's a tasty dish.
