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!
