Fishing for salmon is how we make our livelihood, so we eat it four or more times a week. This recipe is quick, has tasty seasonings and lets the goodness of grilled salmon come through.—Jenny Roth, Homer, Alaska
"SINCE pinto beans and mashed potatoes were our usual daily fare, salmon was a special treat on Sundays. We ate these cakes fast as Mama could fry them—she couldn't get them off the griddle fast enough."
Her family of fishermen keeps Perlene Hoekema of Lynden, Washington supplied with the star ingredient for this well-loved recipe. "Often we catch enough to share and sometimes send some of our delicious Northwest salmon to Michigan for my sister to enjoy," Perlene relates.
This maple salmon is special because it comes from my mom, both my children like it and it's easy to prepare. I serve this recipe with rice and broccoli. The sauce tastes great on the rice. —Danielle Rothe, Greenville, New York
AFTER our children were married and gone, I prepared this entree often for my husband and me, especially on our anniversary. It was one of our favorites.
We found that one of the nicest ways to enjoy each other's company was to have a great meal together.

I'm always up for a good salmon dinner, but this is the best recipe I've ever made. Strawberry jam might seem like a surprise in an Asian-inspired dish, but it makes a sweet-savory glaze that impresses everyone—even my boyfriend, who doesn't like fish. —Krystina Cahalan, Winter Park, Florida
Not only is this my husband's favorite meal, but it's a dish dinner guests enjoy as well. The delicate taste is a wonderful reminder that it is as delicious as it is healthy. —Joan Garneau of Ellenton, Florida
"This is the perfect thing to make for a speedy, healthy meal. I sometimes prepare the marinade in the morning and put the salmon in when I get home from work, and within 30 minutes, they're sizzling on the grill. Add a salad and dinner's ready!"
