Salmon a la Shiitake
Wild salmon, earthy shiitake, and fresh rosemary are a winning combination in this simple but stunning meal.
1 Fillet Wild Salmon
1 lb of Shiitake Mushrooms
1/4 cup of Maple Syrup
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 medium Onion or Shallot
1 sprig of Rosemary
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking tray with aluminum foil; lay salmon skin-side down on the foil.
Scatter rosemary over entire salmon fillet. Cover salmon flesh evenly with mushroom caps, gill-side down. Scatter onions/shallots evenly over salmon and mushrooms. Pour maple syrup & soy sauce evenly over entire fillet.
Bake on oven's middle rack for 20-30 minutes, until salmon is done (internal temperature should be 145 degrees). Use a fork to check thickest part of fillet. Texture is best when flakey and slightly moist.
