Grilled Salmon with Maple Rosemary Glazed

Salmon on Grill

This grilled salmon recipe is made with a maple rosemary marinade for about 20 minutes. This marinade will turn into a glaze as you grill the fish.

Salmon is one of my favorite kinds of fish. I absolutely love it, specially when it is grilled. I love the smoky flavor the grill gives the fish. I also like the fact that the fish cooks so fast and dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes – 20 for marinating, 10 for cooking.

Salmon can be expensive so when I find a deal, I jump on it. This week I found a large fillet at Costco and paid $12 for it. Not bad considering it fed 5 of us.

I marinated this fish in:
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
3 sprigs Rosemary, leaves removed from twig

I whisked the syrup and the soy sauce and then added the garlic and the Rosemary. The fish marinated for a total of 20 minutes, 10 minutes per side, in the refrigerator.

We cooked the salmon on a medium heat grill for 5 minutes per side. Half of it went directly on the grill – we oiled the grids well with a paper towel wad soaked in olive oil. The other half we placed on a log – a simple wood fire log – that Peter placed in his grill. The smoky flavor the log added was intensely delicious! This piece took a few extra minutes to be cooked. We cooked the fish with the grill cover down.

Dinner was great tonight!

    I appreciate your use of salmon – and it is a meat with virtually no waste when purchased in quantity as well as small portions. BUT please reconsider the use of farmed salmon as your source of food. There are some salmon farms that are improving their protocol for raising fish – but these are mostly in remote areas.

    To date farmed salmon would be too harmful to the environment because of the excessive waste, use of antibiotics to keep fish stock healthy and added coloring agents to give salmon the classic red appearance. Yes, it’s cheap — but at what cost to the environment?
