Hi! I'm a newbie to your forums, but registered tonight because of this Whole Foods section. How cool to find people who share the same thoughts on food as myself.
One of my favorite recipes is almost a non-recipe, it's so simple! You just combine about 3/4 cup of maple syrup (the real stuff, not Mrs. Butterworth!) with about 1/4 cup of soy sauce, then add salmon fillets and marinate for a day or two. You want the salmon to either be covered by the marinade, or give it a turn from time to time.
To cook, remove the salmon pieces from the marinade. Grind over a good amount of fresh, coarse pepper and grill until done to your liking. You can also cook it under the broiler.
When it's done, it's almost candied in texture, and has an amazing flavor. I love it hot, warm or even cold, and often flake any leftovers into a salad.
I'm off to do more reading here....but hope to get to know you all better!
