We tapped our own maple trees this year and bottled four gallons of maple syrup so it seemed appropriate to cook our fish with this fresh made seasonal treat.
You know salmon season is about to begin when the sap stops flowing. Syrup done? Time to fish!
This salmon was cooked very simply, first we cleaned the fish and washed it.
|it's a girl!|
|we discussed eating the eggs...|
We then cut it into steaks, probably the easiest way to cook salmon.
Heat a skillet with some oil and drop the steaks in.
Let them cook for a little while and then poor some syrup on and turn them over and do the same on the other side.
The results Maple Glazed Salmon Steaks!
Now we had so much fish here Clay took it home to feed his family. The recipe he made was one his dad suggested.
Maple Honey Barbecued Salmon.
Another super easy recipe.
For this one you need to fillet the fish and sprinkle the fillets with Cayenne pepper.
Turn the grill on and let it get hot.
While the grill is heating make your sauce.
Just mix cheap barbecue sauce with maple syrup and honey and your done.
Now spray the grill with non-stick spray and throw the fillets on skin side down.
