Skill level: Beginner
Start to Finish: 30 minutes, plus 30 minutes refrigeration
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
1 lb. wild salmon fillets
3 tablespoons 100% pure maple syrup
¼ cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons dark sesame oil
2 teaspoons Dijon or grainy mustard
½ teaspoon sriracha or Asian chili sauce
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely chopped
1. In a small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, mustard and chili sauce. Stir in scallions, garlic, and ginger. Pour marinade into 8 x 8 inch baking dish and place salmon in marinade, skin side up (if skin has not been removed already). Allow salmon to marinate for 30 minutes to one hour.
2. Oven Method: Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and place salmon filets, skin side down on sheet. If baking, my preference is to remove the skin prior to marinating. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until white protein appears and fish flakes.
3. BBQ (or Grill) Method: Preheat and lightly oil barbeque. Place salmon skin side down, with lid closed and grill over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, or until white protein appears and fish flakes.
4. Serve immediately. Garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired.
