Great grilled salmon with a nice maple and ginger taste.


1/3 cup Maple syrup
1/2 cup Water
4 tsp Ginger roots; peeled and minced
2 cloves Garlic; minced
1/4 tsp Salt
4 6-oz Salmon filet
Salt and pepper

Original recipe makes 4



In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine maple syrup, water, ginger root, garlic and salt. Heat until mixture reaches a gentle boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer until sauce is reduced to approx. 1/2 cup. Cool.

Place salmon fillets on the broiler pan and season with salt and pepper. Broil in a preheated broiler about 4 in. from heat surce for 4 minutes. Remove from broiler, bursh with sauce and broil again until the salmon flakes easily, aout 6 mor minutes.

The general rule of thumb for cooking fish is 10 minutes per inch.


Great tasting fish. I didn't have ginger root so used powdered ginger and cut the amount in half. I'll definitely be making this one again.

Turned out really good. I recommend using some foil because any of the syrup sauce that got on the pan and then got broiled was pretty hard to get off the pan.

This was super yummy! I like a little more "kick" so I added 1 tsp of crushed red peppers to the sauce. OMG gooooood! I served it with roasted sweet and spicy brussels sprouts. This is a favorite now for sure.

Easy but very tasty sauce. We really enjoyed peaces of caramelisized ginger with salty fish. Excellent!
