Grilled Maple Salmon

My family loves salmon and one of the easiest ways we like to indulge ourselves is with a maple marinade.  I am not sure where I saw this recipe, it was probably on Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals back in the day .   Whoever came up with this idea is genius...

Here is what you will need:
  • salmon fillets
  • maple syrup-  pancakes watch out!
  • soy sauce
  • a bag or container for marinating
  • a George Foreman grill or something similar-  You could even bake them
Here is what you do:
  • pour about 1/2 cup of maple syrup and 1 cup soy sauce in bag
  • mix the marinade-  you can get creative and add a little garlic and pepper
  • put the salmon flesh down in the marinade-  the skin should be facing up

  • marinate for a few hours or overnight
  • heat and grease your grill with olive oil
  • add your meat and cook until the salmon flakes apart easily with a fork-  I usually go for 8-10 minutes, but it depends on the thickness of the fish.  Tonight I accidentally let it go a little too long...

  • serve-  you can make up a small batch of the marinade to use only as a condiment for serving
Enjoy!  I grilled some fresh asparagus before the salmon and served it over a side of rice.  This is a quick and easy dinner.

What's your favorite way to cook fish?
