Salmon is a favorite in our house and we often have it once a week. I prepare it a few different ways and was excited to find this recipe in The Best of Clean Eating. It's so easy & simple!
4 wild caught salmon fillets or steaks (about 4oz each)
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon soy sauce (I prefer low sodium)
Place the salmon fillets in a glass dish. In a small bowl combine the soy sauce and the maple syrup and brush it on both sides of the salmon. Let it marinate for 15 minutes. Preheat the grill to medium high and place the salmon directly on grate for 3-4 minutes. Flip over and grill for 2-3 more minutes or until the salmon is no longer shiny or translucent in the middle. The flesh should be firm and a little flaky.
