Maple Glazed Salmon & Grilled Asparagus

We are fond of eating fish, and love to eat Salmon. This Maple Glazed Salmon is a very tasty and quick way of making Salmon. I use Maple syrup as I love it. The sweetness of the Maple Syrup combined with the crushed ginger adds an excellent flavor and aroma to this dish. I serve it hot with a side dish of Grilled Asparagus and simple Basmati Rice or any kind of bread.

Ingredients: (Maple Glazed Salmon)
  • 2 Salmon Fillets (About 1 inch thick)
  • 2 tbsp of Maple Syrup
  • 2 tbsp of Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp of crushed Ginger
  • 1 tsp of Hot Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Ingredients : (Grilled Asparagus)
  • 1 Bunch of Fresh Asparagus
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
To start with the salmon, mix the Maple Syrup and the Soy Sauce and the Hot Sauce and the ginger in a bowl. Pat dry the Salmon Fillet and put salt and pepper on both sides. I took a medium sized resealable plastic bag and added the Salmon Fillets and the marinade. Coat them well and refrigerate them for about 2 hours. This dish can be cooked on the stove top or grilled, but I chose to make in the oven at 350F for about 20 minutes. After the salmon is done, you can separate the fillets and cook down the glaze on the stove top to get a nice and thick sauce.

For the Grilled Asparagus, I boil water in a pan, salt it generously and then add the bunch of cleaned Asparagus. The trick to this dish, is not to cook the Asparagus for long, cook them covered only for two minutes. Meanwhile heat a griddle on stove top, and slightly brush the griddle with oil. Now drain the Asparagus and pat dry, then put them on the griddle, sprinkle little bit of salt and pepper on top and turn them once. Serve them as a side dish with the Maple Glazed Salmon and you will just love them.
