Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon

You're sure to enjoy this heart healthy recipe, using pure maple syrup. Try serving it over a bed of steamed spinach with mushroom couscous for a light and delicious lunch or dinner.

Recipe makes 4 portions.

Whatcha Need:

  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon stone-ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ginger root - thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic - chopped fine
  • 4 salmon fillets - 6-oz each
  • 3 Tablespoons thinly sliced scallions

Whatcha Do:

  1. In a large, shallow dish, mix together the first seven ingredients. Add the salmon fillets, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours, turning the salmon every half-hour.

  2. Remove salmon from the marinade and pour into a small saucepan. Boil marinade over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, until mixture is thick and syrupy. Strain glaze into a small bowl and set aside to cool.

  3. Place salmon, skin side up, on oiled grates of a moderately hot grill and cook for 3 minutes. Rotate steaks slightly to make crosshatches and grill another 2 to 3 minutes. Turn fillets, brush with glaze and grill for 5 minutes longer, or until fish flakes easily with fork.

  4. Transfer to serving plates, drizzle with additional glaze, sprinkle with scallions and serve.
