Uncle Bill's Salmon Marinated in Maple Syrup and Soy Sauce

READY IN: 12mins




  • in a mixing bowl, combine soy sauce, maple syrup, orange juice, lime juice, garlic and ginger; mix well.
  • Place salmon filets in a casserole dish that is large enough for the filets, skin side down.
  • Pour the marinating mixture over the salmon and coat well.
  • Turn salmon fillets with the flesh side down, cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in refrigerator from 1 to 3 hours or overnight.
  • To speed up the marinate time, prick holes in the salmon with a fork and marinate for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Heat butter and oil in a frying pan on medium-high heat.
  • Place marinated filets flesh side down into the hot pan and sear for 2 minutes or until lightly browned on the flesh side.
  • Using an oven proof casserole dish, transfer the salmon and place into the dish, skin side down.
  • Pour the pan juices and the marinade over the salmon.
  • Sprinkle salmon with dried dill weed.
  • Bake in preheated 400 F oven (uncovered) for 5 to 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • The salmon should be firm, but not dry; do not overcook.
  • Serve with Apple Chutney spooned over the top if desired or use any favorite sauce of your choice.
  • For those who find sweetness overtakes the flavor of salmon, I suggest that you reduce the Maple Syrup to 1/4 cup.
  • This recipe can be doubled without any problems.
