Maple Grilled Salmon


The sweet-sour marinade is cooked down to a syrupy glaze that’s brushed on the salmon as it cooks. The citrus and maple flavors would also be tasty with pork. Garnish fillets with orange slices, if desired.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet)



•  1/4 cup rice wine vinegar

•  3 tablespoons maple syrup

•  2 tablespoons fresh orange juice

•  4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets, skinned

•  Cooking spray

•  1/4 teaspoon salt

•  1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



1.  Combine first 3 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add fish. Seal and marinate in refrigerator 3 hours.

2.  Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

3.  Remove fish from bag, reserving the marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 5 minutes).

4.  Place fish on grill rack or pan coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with marinade. Remove fish from grill; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
