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’s. It’s easy and delicious.
- In a small bowl whisk the soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, ginger and orange zest together.
- 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.
- 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.
