quick maple glazed salmon

yes, more fish this week! i LOVE salmon, it's probably my favorite fish. brandon, on the other hand, hates it. so i had salmon & he had soup (he was sick anyway, so it worked)

now usually when i make maple glazed salmon, i let the fish marinate overnight- but since i didn't have time for that, i did the quick salmon glaze this time. (if you want to marinate: 2 parts maple syrup to 1 part soy sauce- marinate overnight & uses seasonings before cooking )

you need:
1 salmon filet (it can be un-skinned if you're not marinating it)
maple syrup (real or fake- i used fake because i'm not big on the real stuff)
soy sauce
sea salt
cracked black pepper
red pepper flakes

set the over to 400. line a broiling pan with foil & spray with non-stick cooking spray. place the salmon (skin side down) onto the foil. rub about 1 1/2 tblsp of maple syrup onto the fish. then sprinkle about 1 1/2 tsp soy sauce on top and rub it in. add a shake or two of the red pepper flakes, black pepper & the sea salt on top and pop it into the oven for about 15-20 min (depending on thickness- until done) then set your over to broil & broil the fish (on the top rack) for about 3-5 min.
pull the fish out & drizzle some addtl maple syrup over the top.

Serve with rice or noodles & a veggie (i ate it by itself- but that's because i was lazy) Enjoy!

oh yes, the husband had soup: chicken broth, egg noodles, hamburg, corn- seasonings. just a quick, simple hearty soup!
