While I was looking for new maple dishes to try I came across a recipe for maple salmon on allrecipes.com. The recipe immediately caught my attention as it reminded me of my all time favorite salmon dish, salmon teriyaki. This maple salmon is very similar to the salmon teriyaki in that they are both marinated in a sweet and salty sauce and then broiled until just cooked. In fact I have used maple syrup as the sweetener in teriyaki sauce instead of sugar before so this recipe seemed pretty natural to me. One of the best things about salmon recipes like this is that they are so easy to make. You just marinate the salmon for 20 or so minutes and then broil for a few minutes. So little effort for such great reward! The maple salmon turned out great! The sweet and salty sauce went really well with the moist and juicy salmon which seemed to almost melt in your mouth. I really like the way the maple flavour worked in this dish. I will definitely be making this again!

2. Cook the salmon in a preheated oven set to broil for 5-10 minutes. (Pour some of the marinade over the salmon several times while cooking.)
