What Grade of Maple Syrup Works Best with Meat, Fish, or Seafood?
Maple syrup has been used to flavor meat, fish, or seafood for as long as people have been taking sap from maple trees and condensing it into maple syrup. No wonder the combination is one of the all-time great food pairings.
Whether it’s used in a sauce, marinade, glaze, or secret ingredient, maple syrup ups any flavor profile.
The key is to choose the right grade to create a balanced blend.
Maple syrup is a lot like chocolate and wine. What works best depends on your taste and your particular flavor goals. In general, the darker the meat, the darker and more strongly flavored the maple grade. Products for fish usually do better with a lighter grade maple syrup, while products for red meat need a darker maple syrup grade in order to make a flavor appearance.
