1 pound salmon fillet, skinned and boned
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 Tbsp. maple syrup
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
Dash of nutmeg
Place salmon in an oven-proof casserole. Mix together the lemon juice, maple syrup, and soy sauce and pour over the fish. Sprinkle lightly with the nutmeg. Let marinate for about 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
Bake the salmon for 15-20 minutes, or until the fish flakes.
Makes four servings.
- The marinade ingredients should glaze, not soak, the salmon.
- Nutmeg is a very powerful spice, so sprinkle lightly.
- Use quality soy sauce and maple syrup; it really makes a difference.
