To that end I went down to the freezer and discovered some salmon fillets. WOOT WOOT! Salmon for supper, query though, how to prepare it? I wanted something that I was fairly sure our Brazilian student would eat (he likes salty, not too sweet, meat and fish is Good very good). :)
I went to all recipes and found this... Maple Salmon. Soy sauce in it, so it'll be a touch salty and just a bit of maple syrup so that would intrigue me and hubby dear. :)
- In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.
- Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes, turning once. Brevity of time had me shorten the marinating time. NOTE: letting it marinate longer would be good. :)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
- Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork. I accidentally cooked with lid on until I flipped the pieces, didn't seem to matter though. :)
My ever so cautious about trying new foods student LIKED IT! oh my.. he had seconds and thirds. He didn't eat the peas (totally expected that as he doesn't eat much in the way of veggies)...but he loved the sauce and the rice and the salmon. WOOT WOOT! I have another dish I can feed him! (grin)
Hubby agreed: Good food.
Son.. well.. the lad tends NOT to like anything new and this was NO, I don't want it. What did you do with the rice mom? It's not white! But he ate it and didn't say it was completely terrible...he tried hard to negotiate his way out of eating it though. :)
Me: I will make this again, but will plan to let it marinate longer. :)
How it looked in the pan (after we took some out)
