Serving Amount
  • 12 cup soy sauce

  • 14 cup maple syrup

  • 1 Juice from lime

  • 1 tbsp grated ginger

  • 4 salmon filets

  • 2 heads broccoli, base trimmed, cut into florets

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • Step 1

    Prepare marinade. In a bowl, whisk soy sauce, maple syrup, lime juice and ginger. Reserve 3 tablespoons of marinade.  

  • Step 2

    In a flat dish, place salmon filets skin side up in the marinade. Allow the fish to marinate for 20-30 minutes. 

  • Step 3

    Start the oven broiler and prepare the broccoli. On a foil-lined sheet pan (do not use parchment paper as it may burn under the broiler) add the broccoli florets and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. 

  • Step 4

    On the same sheet pan, place the marinated salmon, skin side down next to the broccoli. Place on top rack under broiler for 7-10 minutes or until salmon has reached desired temperature (125-130 degrees F makes for a nice texture). 

  • Step 5

    Serve salmon and broccoli over brown rice or quinoa if desired. Use the reserved marinade to drizzle over the salmon and broccoli. Top with chopped green onions and serve with a lime wedge.
