Maple Salmon

Found a great recipe to make Maple Salmon and marinated the salmon about 20 minutes before cooking it. We had a great family day soaking in the sun and using an outdoor grill that took charcoals. I wrapped the salmon in tin foil and put it on the grill once the flames subsided. Only took about 10-15 minutes to cook. It tasted amazing  and I used the juices as a sauce on the plate. This recipe is definetly a keeper!

As a side note: When you are marinating fish in anything citric, make sure you don't leave it marinating no longer than 30 minutes because it will start to cook the fish in the citric acid and will make the fish tough after it's cooked.

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound salmon


  1. In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.
  2. Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.
