Maple Syrup is very important in my family and as sugarmakers, you can understand why. Not only do we love the classic pancakes and syrup in the morning, but maple syrup finds its way into so many of my other recipes as well. Keep reading to see my maple salmon recipe.

With the maple sugar season behind us once again it’s time to get back to our regular jobs, but to also enjoy the fun things Vermont also has to offer. Camping, biking, hiking, fishing, and swimming to name a few. One of our favorite hikes is Mt. Pisgah at Lake Willoughby overlooking the lake, the views are breathtaking. And, of course, the Northeast Kingdom is very well known for its bike trails.

Summer barbeques and fresh fruits and salads are something we always look forward to. This summer, we’re on a salmon kick and as always, maple is on the menu! Try our favorite recipe for Maple Salmon Fillet.
