This recipe 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.

"Really yummy! I only had 2 fillets but still made the entire amount of sauce. With the extra, I poured it over some steamed brussels sprouts and a tiny bit over the salmon once it was done. I actually added a bit more maple syrup and brown sugar to the sauce because we wanted it a bit more sweet. Next time I will try pure maple syrup, I think that will make the dish even better."

"Perfect way to eat salmon, especially for someone who does not like fish!"

"Made exactly by the recipe and it was delicious! I baked it covered longer because my salmon wasn't quite thawed. Very yummy flavour and lots of sauce for your rice."

"My husband and I loved this recipe! It's definitely a new favorite. The only thing I might try is to broil it next time a little bit at the end to get that yummy crust on top."

"This was a very moist recipe. I went ahead and added some Worcestershire sauce, excluded the maple and brown sugar for honey and a sprinkle of soysauce.

Baked it for 15-20 mins at 425F and made enough sauce to pour on the finished product; pretty good overall. My fam bam liked it, i thought it was delicious."
