Healthy, Elegant and Satisfying.. Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon

This is yet another simple, elegant and delicious toaster oven recipe – Maple-Soy Glazed Salmon. I love the contrast of the sweet and salty flavors. This recipe is very easy and any busy housewife will enjoy it. It’s ready in under 10 minutes! Salmon is also an amazing source of protein, which is high in omega-3 oils. Research shows omega-3 oils help prevent heart disease and curb appetite.

I love preparing this dish with my daughter. It’s simple enough for kids to make, yet elegant enough to serve to the fussiest of adults. The sweet and salty flavors serve as a wonderful contrast to the buttery salmon.

Salmon, 4 to 6 pieces per tray
Soy or Teriyaki sauce
Maple syrup Grade B*

*A lot of people think that Grade A Maple Syrup is better. The jury’s still out on this, but I like Grade B better! Grade B is produced later in the season and has a better maple flavor and more minerals. Grade A might be better for putting on your pancakes in the morning, but Grade B is definitely better for a recipe like this.

-Cover a toaster oven tray with tin foil. Fold up the edges, forming a “bucket”, to place the salmon in so the sauces dont seep out.
-Cover the bottom of the tray lightly with soy or teriyaki sauce.
-Place the salmon on top.
-Drizzle more soy or teriyaki sauce across the top of the salmon pieces. Add a touch of maple syrup.
-Cook in toaster oven at the highest temperature on the top rack for 10 minutes, or the top of the salmon begins to caramelize. Be careful not to over cook the salmon. Remember, the fish will continue to cook a bit after you take it out of the toaster oven.
-Take the salmon off of the tray with a spatula and plate it! This dish is great when served with rice and spinach.
