Ginger, soy, maple and some chili flakes are mixed in together to give a deliciously fragrant accompaniment to salmon.
Preheat oven to 400F (180-200 C). Line an oven-safe dish with tinfoil (for easy cleanup, but you can skip this if you want). Place salmon in the dish, skin side down. Rub salmon with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper on each fillet.
In a small bowl mix together the maple syrup, brown sugar, soy sauce, chili flakes, and ginger. Pour the mixture over the salmon. Flip the salmon over so that the skin is facing up. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 8 - 12 minutes or until you see the salmon turn a nice pink colour (like a salmon peach pink colour). Be careful not to overcook the salmon or else it will become a bit tough and you may burn the maple syrup which would impart a gross flavour.
Remove the salmon and serve immediately. The salmon can be placed in the fridge and reheated the next day. After that, you're going to need to throw it away or you will be having issues after eating more than day old salmon LOL.
