Recipe: Weeknight Maple-Glazed Salmon

Weather here in Central Maryland has felt more like September than August, but do not cover your grill up yet! Summer is a great time to grill and this simple Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon is a great way to enjoy a protein full of flavor and “good” fat. This recipe only calls for five ingredients, pairs well with many different sides, and is ready in 30 minutes!

Maple Glazed Salmon (Angela Simpson)
Shopping List:
  • 4 raw salmon fillets (aim for 5oz each)*
  • 4 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 6 tablespoons dark balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

*salmon fillets with the skin on will be easier to grill, try to pick those
How to prepare:
  1. Combine the balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a resealable gallon plastic bag.
  2. Add the salmon fillets to the bag, seal it, try to gently cover the fillets with the marinade, and allow them to sit for about 10 minutes. If you plan on leaving them for longer than 10 minutes, place the bag in the refrigerator.
  3. Lightly oil the grill and preheat to medium-high.
  4. Carefully remove the salmon fillets from the bag and place on a plate. Save the marinade.
  5. Sprinkle the fillets with sea salt and black pepper. Place fillets skin-side up on the grill.
  6. You want to cook for two to three minutes.
  7. Flip each fillet  so they should are skin side down and cook for another six months (if your fillet is thicker than an inch, cook for a little longer)
  8. Brush the fillets with the maple-balsamic marinade.
  9. That’s it!
For a complete, tasty meal, like the one seen here, serve with your favorite seasonal vegetables and  a starch (sweet potatoes, quinoa, rice).

Enjoy and let us know in the comment section how it turned out.
