INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons fresh peeled grated ginger
4 teaspoons fresh minced garlic
1/2 – 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Ginger Zing salt from Salts of the 7 Seas
3 pounds of skin-on salmon (either a single fillet or several smaller fillets)
Extra-virgin olive oil

PREPARATION
  1. Heat grill to medium.
  2. Mix together maple syrup, balsamic vinegar, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Salt with Ginger Zing salt from Salts of the 7 Seas to taste. Reserve half of glaze.
  3. Liberally brush both sides of salmon with olive oil.
  4. Place salmon on the grill flesh side down. Cook until the salmon starts to loosen from the grates (about 7-8 minutes for a single 3-lb. salmon fillet). Flip the salmon over and gently spoon half of glaze over the cooked salmon. Continue to cook for another few minutes. You want the salmon to flake with a fork but still be a bit opaque in the middle. It will continue to cook when you pull it off the heat.
