This maple soy glazed salmon has just the right amount of salty and sweet to complement the salmon. I usually do it on the grill outside, but this can just as easily be cooked under the broiler. If you're going to cook it inside, place the broiler pan in the second position down from the heat source and make sure it doesn't burn.
This salmon needs to stay in the marinade at least two hours ... but 4 is better, and if you make this up right before bed and stick it into the refrigerator, it makes a quick, easy dinner the next day. 15 minutes, tops, to fresh, delicious salmon. What could be better?

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, maple syrup, water, and vegetable oil until syrup is mixed in. Place fish in a large resealable plastic bag with the soy sauce mixture, seal, and turn to coat. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours .

Lightly oil grill. Place salmon on the preheated grill, and discard marinade. Cook salmon for 6 to 8 minutes per side, or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
