Maple Salmon

I love this recipe for salmon.  It's very delicious, and it's also super quick and easy!  I always have these ingredients on hand, too.  Make sure you use real maple syrup for this one.  I also use reduced-sodium soy sauce; it is still plenty salty.  I had some extra ginger, minced up for another recipe, so I threw some of that in the marinade and it was great in there.  It is also good minus the ginger, though. 

You never want to marinate fish for very long; hence the 30-minute marinade time for this recipe.  If you leave a marinade on fish for too long, the fish starts to break down.
