Maple Marinated Roasted Salmon

A side of this roasted salmon is ample enough to feed a crowd. The marinade of maple syrup, lemon juice, gingerroot, and soy sauce enhances the salmon's flavor without losing the marinade's own sweet identity.

  • 3/4 cup maple syrup (grade B, if available)
  • 2 tablespoons grated and peeled fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice (or white-wine vinegar)
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • one 2 1/4-pound salmon fillet (skin on)

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large baking dish, combine maple syrup, gingerroot, lemon juice, soy sauce, pepper, and salt. Place salmon, skin-side up, in dish. Cover, refrigerate, and marinate 15 minutes. Turn; marinate 15 minutes.

2. Line a large baking pan with parchment paper. Place salmon on parchment, skin-side down. Brush with marinade and place in oven. Roast salmon 10 minutes. Brush fish with remaining marinade and continue roasting until flesh flakes when tested with a fork 10 to 15 minutes more. Serve.
