Good things to eat

Maple Ginger Salmon

I stole this recipe from an old friend.  Well, maybe “stole” is a little harsh, it has been years since she’s made if for me and I’m just making it from memory!  Perhaps “inspired” by an old friend’s recipe!!

Actually, the time she made it I have to admit that to this day, it is the best salmon I’ve ever had!  But that might just be because it was a great night with friends and food!   And what probably made it so good was that it was wrapped in tin foil and was either put or fell ( I can’t really remember) into the remaining embers of the charcoal briquettes in the bar b que!!

Here’s what you will need:

  • Some nice pieces of salmon of your choice, as many as you need.

The Marinade:  Again, amounts based on how much you are making

  • 2 – 5 cloves fresh garlic
  • about 1 inch chunk of fresh ginger
  • a few tbsp of maple syrup
  • a few tbsp of good soya sauce or Bragg sauce
  • a couple of tsp of roasted sesame oil
  • 1 tsp or less of chili flakes

Maple ginger marinade

Whiz this up in your mini chopper or food processor or just make sure you chop everything really fine and mix by hand.   Pour into a baking dish, adding a little water if  the marinade is too think or doesn’t cover the bottom of the dish.

Then add the fish and turn them over and around in the marinade and let sit for at least 1/2 hour but an hour would be better.

Marinate the salmon

Then into the oven at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes or as long as they take too cook according to the thickness of the fish and the efficiency of your oven!


If you want to do them on the bar b que that would be great too.   Right on the grill is fine but if you want to do them like I had so long ago……take a good size piece of tin foil and place a piece of salmon in the middle then spoon a few spoonfuls of marinade over the fish and then wrap it up into a little bundle and either put on the grill or if you are camping…..toss right in the fire!

Serve with your favorite side dishes!
