Fresh salmon fillets are marinated for an hour in a garlic-maple sauce before being baked to moist and flaky perfection.
Baked Maple Salmon
Ingredients Makes: 2 servings
2 salmon fillets (3-4 oz)
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced with green shoots removed
1 tbsp fresh parsley, minced
1/4 tsp sea salt
lemon wedges (garnish)
parsley sprigs (garnish)
Carefully remove the skin from the fillets with a sharp knife, this will help reduce the fishy taste.
In a small bowl mix together extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, maple syrup, soy sauce, minced garlic, minced fresh parsley and sea salt. Rub marinate on both sides of salmon fillets and place in a fitting glass baking dish and cover with tinfoil. Allow fish to marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place sealed fillets in preheated oven and bake for 20-30 minutes; the time depends on the size of the salmon fillets. Salmon is ready when it easily flakes with a fork, try not to over-bake. Garnish with a wedge of lemon and a few sprigs of parsley before serving.
