Grilled Teriyaki Salmon

The super-fast marinade for this salmon recipe combines maple syrup and teriyaki sauce which also creates a delicious sweet-and-sour glaze. The salmon stays extremely moist and is really yummy. —Lenita Schafer, Ormond Beach, Florida

    Delicious flavor combination. I love how the sauce caramelizes along the edges!

    Super fast and easy lunch. Cooked it on a grill pan about 5 min each side.

    I modified the recipe to use in the broiler...cook for 5 minutes and then basted frequently for another 8-10 minutes. I also let it marinate for about 48 hours...had lots of good flavor!
