Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon Recipe

Publisher Photo
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

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min.
MAKES: 8 servings

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)

Nutritional Facts

One serving (4 ounces cooked salmon) equals 254 calories, 12 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 67 mg cholesterol, 179 mg sodium, 12 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 23 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1 starch.

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 up 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.
  4. 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.
