Maple syrup and apple juice provide the mildly sweet marinade for these salmon fillets. Whether they are broiled or grilled, the fillets glaze nicely when basted. Everyone I've served this to seems to love it. —Kathy Schrecengost Oswego, New York

"I'm always looking for new salmon recipes and this was delicious. I will definitely make again, but will use a tip from another reviewer - use applesauce instead of juice. I think it would be good for the marinade to "stick" a bit better to the salmon when broiling. I think subbing pineapple juice for the apple juice would be great."

"I've made this many times and it is excellent. This time, I didn't have any apple juice, but I did have some apple sauce. Worked great, and the marinade stuck to the salmon even better. Made it for my folks and they just loved it!!"

"I was looking for something easy to make and found this recipe. Made this for dinner tonight, and i thought that it was a little dry. I marinated the fish for about 2 hours, there was little flavor in it. The marinade does not penetrate well into the fish."

"This is one of my 2 favorite salmon recipes (both from TOH). Always delicious & couldn't be easier. Moist, flavorful - wouldn't change a thing. Thank you, TOH!"
