This is simply a delicious way to cook salmon. The marinade is a subtly Americanized version of traditional Japanese teriyaki glaze, and uses maple syrup as a sweetener instead of sugar. Its light maple taste makes it a festive choice for the holidays if you have a pescatarian in the house, or an easy way to liven up an everyday piece of plain grilled salmon so you can get your ration of Omega 3 oils. It’s easy and delicious.
1. In a small bowl whisk the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, ginger and orange zest together.
2. Place the salmon fillet in a re-sealable plastic bag and pour in the soy mixture. Close the bag and place onto a plate and store in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight.
3. Before serving preheat your broiler and remove the salmon from the bag discarding the garlic. Place onto a baking try and broil for 8 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Serve immediately or at room temperature.
