My brother-in-law once made a sweet glaze for salmon. I lightened up a similar recipe. Grilling gives the salmon palate-pleasing taste and eye-appealing flair, making it perfect for weeknight suppers as well as weekend dinner parties.—Kate Selner, St. Paul, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 salmon fillet (2 pounds)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add the salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill salmon, skin side down, over medium-hot heat for 2-4 minutes.
  3. Transfer to a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 17 in. x 21 in.). Spoon some of the reserved marinade over salmon. Fold foil around fillet and seal tightly. Grill 5-6 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open slowly to allow steam to escape. Brush with remaining marinade. Yield: 8 servings.

"I make this for club meetings/gathers and everyone always wants the recipe. It is a salmon that I make as both an entree and as an appetizer served with crackers."

"We eat salmon frequently and this sounds like a delicious change from how I prepare it. Since it's a fatty fish, I have never had it come out dry. Maybe overcooked?"

"Because I don't have a grill I baked it at 350 for 25 minutes. It turned out very good."

"This is the worst recipe I have ever tried from Taste of Home - grilled salmon. You MUST add some type of fat! Fish was dry and pretty tasteless. Angelizz10"
