Maple Glazed Grilled Salmon
What To Buy:
Two Tbsp of pure Maple Syrup
Three Tbsp of dark Balsamic Vinegar
Two raw Salmon fillets (with the skin)
Sea Salt and Black Pepper to taste
One Tbsp of Olive Oil
What To Do:
First you will need to mix together your maple syrup and balsamic vinegar in a resealable bag (think Zip-loc). Next seal your salmon fillets in your bags and let them marinate for NO LESS THAN TEN MINUTES (if you have time, the longer, the better) while you prepare the grill. While they marinate, lightly oil your grill, then preheat it to a medium-high temperature.
You will then transfer your salmon fillets from the bags to a plate. Make sure to pour the remaining marinade over the filet. Next, sprinkle with some sea salt and black pepper to your liking. Place the filets with the skin-side up on your grill for about two minutes. Then flip them (skin-side down) and let grill until they are cooked. This will take about six minutes depending on the thickness of your filet.
If you would like, they can be served as is or with brown rice, quinoa, a side salad, or sauteed veggies. Enjoy!
