People often say that you should eat one or two portion of fish each week, when you add everything, it can be daunting and hard to know how to reinvent this dish and ensure that it doesn’t become boring. This salmon recipe is one that you will want to make again and again because it is really simple, but the flavors are pretty amazing. Let me tell you, this dish will never be boring. The ginger and the maple syrup is a dynamic duo that really elevates the plate.
The biggest challenge with the salmon is that more often than not, we think about a salmon that is dry and chewy. It seems quite hard to make a salmon that is tender and soft.
