I love this recipe because it is so easy & yummy for any busy work day. Preparation time includes the minimum marinade time, but the marinade can be done before leaving for work in the morning. This is easily scaled to marinate any amount of salmon. I make this often just for myself with only 1 nice salmon steak. Just use the 2:1 ratio of maple syrup to soy sauce, then add enough garlic and black pepper to suit your personal taste. Goes well with rice, string green beans or peas, too.
