Maple Salmon


This was a spur of the moment, what am I going to do with this salmon to make it interesting recipe. Here's what I came up with.

Salmon Fillets (I used 2 - recipe can be adapted for more)
1-2 tbsp melted margarine
1/4 cup maple syrup (I just used my regular pancake syrup)
dill

Heat the oven to 350*. Place the salmon fillets in a shallow baking pan. Pour margarine and syrup overtop. Sprinkle with dill. Cover with foil and bake until fish flakes easily (20+ minutes).

(FYI - that's squash, mashed potatoes and creamed corn on the plate too)

Simplicity at its very best.

I never would have thought of that combination myself, but it sounds like it would be delicious!

What a nice change. It would cut back the objectionable "fishy" aspect of salmon as well!!

Sometimes those spur of the most dishes are the tastiest!

You are so clever to be able to come up with a tasty meal on the spur of the moment. I most always need a recipe.

You just gave me an idea...we are going king salmon fishing this weekend (not a heavy flavor as others but...), and I am packing my spices, so the maple syrup is going into the box! Thanks...
