Maple Cured Salmon

Salmon is probably my favourite fish & I'm always looking for new ways to prepare it. This recipe came from the Maple Restaurant in Halifax Nova Scotia & was created by Michael Smith (Chef At Large on the Food Network). Note overnight marinating is required!

ingredients

directions

  • Whisk syrup and salt in small bowl until well combined.
  • Place salmon in a container just big enough to hold them in a single layer.
  • Pour syrup mixture over top, cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove salmon from the brine and place on a roasting rack.
  • Let it drain briefly; bake in a preheated 400F oven for 5- 7 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish).
  • To judge doneness, squeeze the fish or prod with a thin-bladed knife.
  • The flesh should just begin to flake and will be moist and juicy inside.
  • Meanwhile, place Chardonnay, mustard and cream into a small pot and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 8- 10 minutes to allow liquid to reduce and sauce to thicken.
  • Reserve& keep hot while the salmon cooks.
  • Just before serving, add the chives and swirl to combine.

    A little too sweet for our tastes, so perhaps next time I won't marinate it quite as long. The sauce really made the meal though. . .it was the perfect complement to the sweet fish! Very simple to make. Thanks!
