Need Ideas with Maple Syrup

I am looking for some ideas/recipes with real maple syrup besides eat it with pancakes or waffles. I have tried a marinade with flank steak that has maple syrup and it is fantastic. Looking for others. Thanks in advance.

  1. Just this morning I made a lovely baked French toast with pate and organic maple syrup on top. A spoonful in coffee is also nice. Your imagination is really the only limit when it comes to maple goodness!

        We make the "Maple Walnut Pie" from the first Moosewood cookbook. Simple, quick, and absolutely delicious!

      2. Maple Salmon Bites
        • 1 c. Vermont maple syrup
        • 1/3 c. soy sauce
        • 24 oz. skinned salmon fillet
        • 1/4 c. freshly ground black pepper
        • Vegetable spray

        Cut salmon into bite-size cubes. Combine maple syrup and soy sauce in a medium-size bowl and add salmon, making sure the fish is fully immersed in the marinade. Cover and refrigerate for 24 hours. Preheat oven to 500°. Grease a sheet of aluminum foil with vegetable oil spray. Put pepper in small bowl or plate and dip top of salmon pieces into pepper. Place each peppered piece on foil, then cook in oven for 3 to 4 minutes. Serve immediately.

          I've made this many times, but I leave the salmon whole. It's great, and super easy. Good of you're trying to impress a date, too.

        2. Mix some maple syrup with a bit of Dijon mustard, some ancho chili powder, salt and pepper, and brush it on salmon fillets. Roast at 450F for no longer than 15 minutes.
