I’m a huge fan of maple syrup.
A 100% natural sweetener, it’s traditionally used as accompaniment to pancakes, cakes and brioche toast.
However I also like to use as a marinade and it wonderfully compliments both pork and also salmon.
For this week’s #tastytuesdays I wanted to share my recipe for my Maple Syrup Oven Roasted Salmon Bagels.
If you’re a fan of marinades using honey, I highly recommend this maple syrup alternative.
It really is delicious and the sweetness of the syrup works wonderfully against the rich salmon fillets.
Served on a toasted bagel -I like wholemeal, the husband plain as used here- this is a fabulously healthy and filling lunch dish packed full of omega 3 fatty acids and potassium.
It’s the perfect dish for the whole family. Whenever I make a batch my boys gobble them up in no time!
Ingredients (Serves 4)
- 100ml maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of fresh orange juice
- 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 4 skin-off salmon fillets
- 4 bagels, sliced in half and toasted to your liking.
- A large handful of green leaves, washed.
Add the maple syrup, orange juice, apple cider vinegar, salt and ground pepper and water to a large baking dish and mix. Add salmon fillets to the dish and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 200°c, place marinated fillets on a foil lined baking tray and roast in the oven until salmon turns flakey and is cooked through.
Remove from oven and add to toasted bagels with leaves.
