"This was delicious! I didn't have any grapefruit juice on hand, so I substituted orange juice as other reviewers did. Really good, will make again!"

"My favorite salmon recipe is super easy.  I mix equal parts balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and maple syrup in a resealable bag and add salmon filets to marinate for about 10 minutes.  Then  grill or broil until flaky.  Super simple and tastes great.
