Last week I was appointed head chef of the Haus of Spitzer. With Lake Michigan being our bath water, fish is a must and we had it almost every night. One item on the menu was Maple Glazed Salmon. We found the recipe in Traverse Magazine and it was juicy, crunchy and just delicious. I highly recommend you making this TONIGHT.
3 tablespoons maple syrup | 2 tablespoons soy sauce | 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger | 1.5 teaspoons cornstarch, dissolved in 1 tablespoon water | 4 salmon fillets | 1 tablespoon sliced pecans
1. In a small bowl, whisk together syrup and cornstarch/water solution until smooth
2. Place fillets skin-side-down in baking pan (I placed them on tin foil to prevent a messy clean up)
3. Pour half of syrup mixture over salmon
4. Bake about 15-18 minutes at 450 degrees until the fish begins to flake. Baste with another 1/4 of glaze halfway through cooking.
5. Finish off with the final 1/4 of maple glaze and top with pecans. ENJOY!
