The recipe doesn't sound promising - maple syrup and soy sauce as a combination is a little odd, I admit, until you try it. At which point, you will realise that the flavour profile is very close to teriyaki, and it actually tastes better than the commercial teriyaki sauces (although not quite as good as the local Japanese). I am sure this will remain a favourite especially, but not only, when we are away on holidays because:
- it is so damn easy
- there are three ingredients (four if you are really getting fancy), and even the smallest town general store has soy sauce and maple syrup.
So thank you Kevin from Closet Cooking for the recipe (who incidentally attributes it to Allrecipes).
PS Click on the link below and look at Kevin's photo - much prettier than mine. In my defence, there were 10 yr olds nipping at my ankles.

4 salmon fillets (skinned and boned if you prefer)
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger (if you like but you don't really need it)
Marinate the salmon in the maple, soy and ginger for about 20 minutes. Put the salmon on an oven tray and baste generously with marinade. Grill the salmon under a pre-heated hot griller for 5-10 minutes, depending on how rare you like your salmon . Place the salmon on a plate and pour some of the maple sauce from the bottom of the pan on top of the salmon. Serve with rice to sop up more of the sauce and some greens.
