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.
