Spicy Maple Soy Salmon

Salmon recipe

You gotta love simple, yet tasty recipes, and on top of it to boot...quick and easy! Doesn't get better than that, really, no matter who you are. Seriously.

This is as simple as mix sauce, pour over salmon, bake, boil water for rice. BAM. This actually calls for marinating the salmon for 15 minutes but I always forget and just throw the sauce on immediately and bake...still comes out tasty :)

I also forgot to add in the "spicy" part in the recipe, the garlic gives it a nice mild kick, but if you need more kick, add in some chili sauce or sriracha sauce! Sriracha rocks, giant bottle, cheap, spicy.

  • 1 large salmon fillet
  • ½  cup maple syrup
  • 3 tbs soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic (minced) 
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 cup wild rice
  • Pepper & brown sugar to taste

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Start boiling your pot of water for the rice.
  • Combine maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, and garlic salt in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Place salmon in a shallow baking dish and coat with the maple syrup mixture (if not sweet enough, dissolve in some brown sugar). Cover the dish and marinate salmon in the fridge for 15 minutes (best if you can do this ahead of time to soak in the flavor).
  • At this point your boiling water should be ready, prepare wild rice according to instructions.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven, bake salmon uncovered for approximately 20 minutes or until easily flaked.
  • Serve on bed of rice, pour remaining marinade sauce over top.
