4 Tbsp soy sauce
1 cup real maple syrup
2 Tbsp Garlic Paste
2 tsp Garlic Powder
2 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 400
Rinse salmon and dry with a paper towel
Combine Soy sauce, Maple Syrup, Garlic Paste, Garlic Powder and black pepper in a bowl with a whisk.
Place Salmon in a sealed plastic bag with your marinade mixture (squeeze out all the air ) and leave it in the fridge for about 30 minutes.
Place Salmon on foil with the edges folded up to form a bowl and place on a cookie sheet then pour the remaining marinade from the bag over the salmon.
Bake in middle of oven for 20 minutes or until flakey.
Sprinkle with parsley then add maple garnish.
Maple balsamic garnish.
You have 2 options depending on how industrious you are feeling:
Lightly glaze with Olive Cart Maple Balsamic before serving.
Balsamic Pearls
(Start these prior to baking salmon in the oven)
For this you will need the following
1/2 cup Olive Cart Maple Balsamic
1 cup Olive Cart Organic Olive Oil ( or a non infused oil of your choice )
2 tsp Agar Agar This is a gelatin alternative used in molecular gastronomy. 
2 cups water.

Place olive oil in a clear glass bowl and chill it for 30 minutes in the freezer
Place balsamic and agar agar in a small sauce pan and boil over medium heat while gently stirring with a whisk.
Remove from heat and remove chilled bowl from freezer. Use a large dosing syringe or pipette to make drops of your balsamic mixture about 1 inch over the chilled oil as they drop into it they will form little pearls that will sink to the bottom. After you get twenty or so carefully fish them out with a spoon then place in a strainer over your oil to let them drain a little. Gently place them in your water and lightly stir to rinse the oil off.then carefully remove and strain them one last time then they are ready to garnish salmon. They can be kept up to 2 weeks in a jar in the fridge if you need to make them ahead of time.
You can use this for any flavor of balsamic.

Note: if you want to have some fun with balsamic pearls, you can use this same process to make pearls from sweeter balsamics like Lemon white or Huckleberry to garnish ice cream of cheesecake.
