This baked soy maple salmon is a great quick and easy recipe that is great for any dinner. The recipe only uses six ingredients and are very easy to find, probably have them in your kitchen right now. The salmon cooks in under 15 minutes and comes out flaky and covered in a delicious glaze that is caramelized on right at the end. If salmon isn't your favorite kind of fish, you can also replace it with a different fatty fish such as cod, sea bass, halibut or trout.
In a bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, brown sugar, minced garlic and ginger.
Place the salmon in a glass baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Pour the marinade over the salmon. Allow the salmon to marinate in the dish with the maple syrup and spices for about 30 minutes. Flip your salmon over halfway through marinating so the skin side is up and pink part is immersed in the sauce. I allow mine to marinate in the dish on the counter while I prep the sides I am going to be serving with the salmon. You can also marinate this over night if you like.
Preheat the oven to 425F degrees. Place the salmon skin side down. Spoon some of the sauce over top and cook the salmon for about 10-15 minutes. While the salmon is cooking, spoon some of the maple syrup mixture over top of the salmon half way through. The salmon will be done when the internal temperature reaches 145F degrees.
Once the salmon is about done, turn your oven to broiler and let the top get caramelized. Serve hot with the sauce from the cooking pan.
