Broiled Salmon with Maple Ginger Glaze!

IMG_7458.JPG


Do you know what you’re having for dinner? How about salmon? This Maple & Ginger Glazed Salmon is one of my go-to weeknight dinner recipes. It has a short ingredient list, it takes less twenty minutes to make, and best of all, it’s absolutely delish!

"It’s better to undercook this dish a bit than to overcook it. People need to remember that even after you take fish off the grill or out of the oven, it’s going to continue cooking."

Salmon is a sweet, mild fish which can easily be paired with a variety of side dishes:  a bed of lemony arugula or a green salad with a citrus vinaigrette are among many great options. Salmon is also delicious served over steamed rice, couscous, or quinoa.

If you are feeding the whole family, you can use an entire fillet of salmon. Here, I scaled the recipe down to serve two people, but you can easily adjust it to suit your needs.

Also you can find this recipe in my NEW Cookbook “Taste the Love of Maple”.

Easy variation to this recipe - Sprinkle on our very own Maple Seasoning for a delicious sweet and savory taste. Broil immediately for a quick dinner.

Serves 2
Ingredients

2 tablespoons Justamere Tree Farm maple syrup
2 tablespoons white wine
2 teaspoons grated organic ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
Two 6-ounce salmon fillets

Directions
1. Whisk together the maple syrup, wine, ginger, mustard, and salt in a small bowl. Add two filets of salmon to bowl, cover with marinade, and let sit for 2-4 hours.

2. Preheat the broiler to high. Place salmon on a broiler pan coated with olive oil, and brush salmon with half the marinade. Place the salmon under the broiler and broil until fish flakes easily when tested with fork, 7 to 10 minutes. Peek in on fish every few minutes and baste with the remaining marinade.
