Maple Baked Salmon

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

    This was very yummy! I only had 2 filets for my husband and I, but I did the full amount of sauce. I just spooned some over the salmon in the beginning, a little more after taking off the foil, and then a tad bit more at the end. I used the little extra sauce left over to toss with some steamed carrots. Delicious!

    Hubby and I are trying to eat more salmon, it has never really been a favorite of ours. Although, We are starting to develop a taste for it, this recipe took it to the next level. It was absolutely delicious ! We served it with rice and TOH Honey Garlic Green Beans, I recommend that as a side.

    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.
