How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in bottom of a large platter. Add fish, skin side up, to ginger mixture. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 20 minutes. Remove fish from marinade; pat dry with paper towel to remove excess marinade.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 3

Place a baking sheet in oven 5 minutes. Place shallots and fish, skin side down, on baking sheet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush fish with 1 tablespoon syrup. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Brush with 1 tablespoon syrup; bake an additional 7 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.

I enjoyed this salmon and it was very simple to make. The shallots were excellent and my guests really enjoyed their meal. I thought that it needed something to spice it again as I thought as well as did some other people that the shallots outshined the salmon!! If you buy a cheaper type of salmon for this recipe I do not think that it would turn out as good.

I followed all of the directions and then I brushed with maple syrup for a 3rd time. After that, I turned the oven to broil and browned the top for about 4 minutes. It was very good and I will definitely make this again!
