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
- Heat grill to medium.
- 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.
- Liberally brush both sides of salmon with olive oil.
- 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.
