Maple Salmon

This recipe is awesome for people who would like to eat more fish but can't stand the fishy taste! Sugar snap peas go great with this recipe!

1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound salmon

In a small bowl, mix the maple syrup, soy sauce, garlic, garlic salt, and pepper.
Place salmon in a shallow glass baking dish, and coat with the maple syrup mixture. Cover the dish, and marinate salmon in the refrigerator 30 minutes or longer depending on how strong you want the flavor to be, turning once.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Place the baking dish in the preheated oven, and bake salmon uncovered 20 minutes, or until easily flaked with a fork.

Tapatio is very possibly the most wonderful condiment sauce in the world. Of course, all my Latino friends have known about it forever, it is just recently that I have discovered the beauty of such a great sauce.
1. It's spicy.
2. It's not TOO spicy.
3. It's Tangy.
4. It surpassed Tabasco as my father's favorite condiment=Big Deal.
5. It's perfect for fake blood.
6. It tastes good with pretty much everything.

Now, for breakfast:

1 Tortilla (Trader Joe's "homemade" tortillas)
2 Eggs (scrambled)
Enough grated cheese. (Trader Joe's Jalapeno Pepper Jack or any sharp cheddar)

Warm up the tortilla in a hot pan (no oil) and scramble the eggs. put the cheese on the tortilla until slightly melted. Add egg. Add liberal amounts of Tapatio. A perfect breakfast.

Optional: Add a couple of spoons of Corn and Black Bean Salsa that marina posted awhile ago. It's divine.
