Bought some salmon on a whim, looked up easy recipes, eventually ran into this. I had all the ingredients on hand, but I substituted low-sodium soy sauce and sugar free maple syrup, and added red pepper flakes to the marinade. It came out fantastic and was a hit with everyone. I will most definitely be making this again.
Great recipe! Not a big fan of salmon but I know it's good for you so I searched for a recipe that had other ingredients that I do like. Loved the sweetness of the maple syrup and the saltiness of the soy sauce. Made sure to have the skin well removed including the slimey part underneath. Cooked on hot gas grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side in an oiled grill basket made for fish that made for easy turning. I've finally found a salmon recipe that I will make again.
This Recipe is so amazing. I have cooked it twice. The first time, I went a little overboard with the pepper and I didn't marinate it long enough so it turned out a little spicy. But i tried it again, marinated for several hours and took it easy on the pepper. It was a perfect blend of sweet from the marinade and spicy from the pepper. Served it on a bed of white rice and saved some marinade to use as a sauce. Thanks for the smoke warning - my smoke alarm went off but I wasn't worried.
This was excellent...I am not a huge fan of cooked salmon (just raw), but I inhaled this. I also just sprinkled the pepper on the fillets...had a very nice flavor to it. Thanks!
This was such an easy and delicious recipe! The sweet/salty and peppery flavors are so versatile and satisfying. Only change I made was to sprinkle pepper over salmon because it was easier and used one less dish.
I LOVE this recipe. I made mine into bite size pieces and served them as an appi. at a party. They were a HUGE hit!!!
I enjoyed this recipe, it was a mild tasting marinade. I used it as a sauce when the salmon was served. I did half this recipe easily. Thank you SackvilleGirl!
My recipe, too. It's great even if you think you won't like "sweet" salmon. It's easy to make in large quantities, say if you want to bake a side of salmon. Just use 3 parts maple syrup to 1 part soy sauce.
very interesting flavor...family enjoyed it. I ended up adding more of the marinade over the fish half way through cooking because they were looking dry, as well i needed to increase cooking another 10min because my steaks were rather thick.
