A while back, Kelly made a chicken recipe that included maple syrup. It made the whole kitchen smell so good that when I came across a salmon recipe that included maple syrup, I thought it would be fun to try. This recipe was courtesy of the food network and tasted delicious.
3/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 Tablespoons maple syrup
1 Tablespoon dijon mustard
1 clove of garlic, diced
4 6 ounce cut salmon filets
2 Tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
For the glaze: In a small saucepan, bring the vinegar, maple syrup, mustard and garlic to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook until thick, about 12 minutes. Set aside to cool for 5 minutes.
For the salmon: Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange the salmon on the baking sheet. Drizzle both sides of the salmon with the olive oil and season with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Roast until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.
