Maple-and-pepper salmon recipe

Published June 26, 2010 10:27PM (EDT)


  • 12 ounces salmon fillet
  • 3/4 cup real maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper


  1. Cut salmon into 4 circles.
  2. Place the circles in a bowl or plastic bag with maple syrup and soy sauce and marinate in your refrigerator for a full day. (If this is not possible, a couple of hours will do.)
  3. Remove from marinade, pat down each fillet with pepper and place on a piece of aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 500 degrees for 8 minutes. The high heat will cause the caramelizing maple syrup to smoke -- this is a good thing.
