London Broil Steak or Salmon Marinade

This is from my dear friend Mary in Tulsa, OK.  She made it for us when I came down for a visit.  We had it on salmon.

Salmon or London Broil Steak (or whatever else you want to try it on)

2T Extra virgin Olive Oil

4T pure maple syrup

½” piece of fresh ginger, peeled & minced (I don’t think it tastes quite as good, but sometimes I use ½ tsp powdered ginger)

1/3 cup tamari sauce (you could use soy sauce, but I always use tamari)

3T Braggs Liquid Aminos (may have to find at a health food store, but lasts a long’s a salt substitute)

1 large clove fresh garlic, minced

1. This is for 2 lbs of London broil (serves 6), or for the salmon, maybe about 6 or so people. When I make the above recipe, I usually use make the whole recipe for about 4 people, then put the other half in the fridge to use another time. It keeps really well because of the salt type ingredients in the recipe.

2. For the London broil, marinade the steak about 2-8 hrs in the refrigerator, turning the meat often. Broil or grill the meat and I think it’s best if you leave it a little pink in the middle.

3. For the salmon, it doesn’t take near as long to marinade, but turn it a couple of times in the refrigerator. I usually broil salmon, and it takes approx. 6 mins per ½ inch. But it is wonderful grilled! The trick with the salmon is not to cook it too overdone.
