This is really good, but if you want the true sweetness of maple syrup to shine through, you'll need to go a bit further than the recipe takes you. I had planned to do what DESIDERATAGRACEFULLY did, reducing the marinade at the end, because I knew it wasn't going to be quite sweet enough for my taste. Unfortunately even though I packed it in foil, the juices ran out (I probably should've used more foil, lol) and they burned at the bottom of the pie plate. So when the salmon was done I tasted it and found I was right about the sweetness level so I drizzled a generous tablespoon of my favorite maple syrup over it to finish and for a hint of spice I oh so lightly dusted cayenne pepper over that, then it was perfect. (TIP: My favorite real maple syrup is really thick, they use invert maple syrup to thicken it up, Shady Maple Farms organic thick and rich is the brand.) I did also use the fresh garlic DESIDERATAGRACEFULLY recommended and some ginger because I love that flavor with maple. Anyway, I loved it when I was done, and I think it's my personal tastes for sweet and spicy that needed to revise the recipe, so I'm rating it a 5.
