I have a few good recipes for family-favorite, heart-healthy salmon, but this one is always a hit. I serve it this way at least once a week and sometimes more! —David Krisko of Becker, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Fresh thyme sprigs, optional

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, bring the grapefruit juice, vinegar, syrup and garlic to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Transfer 2 tablespoons to a small bowl; add oil. Set remaining glaze aside.
  2. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper; place skin side down on grill rack. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-6 in. from the heat until fish flakes easily with a fork, 10-12 minutes, basting occasionally with maple-oil mixture. Drizzle with reserved 2 Tbsp. glaze. If desired, garnish with fresh thyme sprigs.
