This salmon came out very moist and flavorful, although the maple syrup made the fish a bit too sweet-tasting for my taste. It makes good cold leftovers the next day (good for topping a salad). I did have to cook the fish longer than the time suggested because my salmon fillets were quite thick in the middle.
This is a good recipe for salmon - one of our favorite seafoods. I originally got it from Taste of Home. It has never failed to please in our family. Thanks for posting!
