Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 15-20 min
Total time: 30-45 min
Yield: 4 servings
- 4 filets Salmon
- 3 tablespoons Maple Syrup
- 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
- 1 tablespoon Freshly Grated Ginger
- 1 Thinly Sliced Green Onion
- 1 tablespoon Water
- 1/2 teaspoon Cornstarch
- Preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a medium sized bowl, whisk together your liquid ingredients: water, soy sauce, and maple syrup.
- Once well mixed, add your ginger and cornstarch and continue to whisk until smooth.
- Place Salmon filets, skin side down, in a shallow baking dish. 1 - 1/2 quart casserole dishes work fine.
- Generously spoon your soy maple glaze over the Salmon filets. If you have a little time to spare, marinate the Salmon filets in your glaze for 30 minutes in the refrigerator. If not, dont worry, without marinating it is absolutely delicious and flavorful.
- Bake the fish for 15-17 minutes, or until your fish flakes easily when touched with a fork.
- For best results, baste filets with more soy maple glaze one or two times throughout the baking process.
- This dish is best served on top of a bed of pasta, tossed with butter, garlic, parsley, and olive oil. Sprinkle the chopped green onions on top of your filet, and serve hot!
