Maple soy marinated salmon with maple glazed carrots and rice

Not much to say about this one! Quick and easy dinner since G was home late and I had to get out the door to my volleyball game. I did cook up an extra large batch of rice to use for tomorrow night’s dinner. Last night’s carrots were used tonight instead of green beans.

Maple soy marinated salmon

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1-1.5 lbs salmon

In a small bowl mix the first 6 ingredients. Place salmon in shallow baking dish or in a large plastic baggy. Pour marinade over fish and marinate in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes (Not longer. I recently found out that you aren’t supposed to marinate like meat and shouldn’t do it for over 30 minutes!)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place fish in shallow baking pan (I line mine with foil for easy clean up) brush some extra marinate on top and bake uncovered for 18-20 minutes or until fish is done and easily flaked with a fork.


Maple Glazed Carrots

1 lbs carrots, peeled and sliced
2 tbsp butter
1/3 cup dried cranberries
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
1/2 tsp fresh rosemary
Salt and pepper

Steam carrots until just tender but still firm.

In large skillet, melt butter over medium heat, add carrots along with the cranberries. Cook, stirring often for 3 minutes or until carrots begin to brown. Stir in maple syrup, then ginger, rosemary, salt and pepper. Cook until carrots are shiny and caramelized.
