"I made this recipe with a fresh skin-on portion of salmon and it was delicious," according to msotta. "The maple and garlic flavors were quite nice together without being overpowering, and the salmon was flaky and tender."

"Amazing," raves amy_demidenko. "It's so easy to make and delicious. We have this every week at my house. My husband and I have made it with salmon and trout. Both work. We've also added ground ginger and sesame oil to the marinade."
