GRILLED MAPLE SALMON STEAKS
Whenever we have visitors from Japan, they always bring us gifts and I’m always in a quandary what to send back with them. I heard they like our Maple syrup since they use it for a lot of their cooking and they were happy, although it was quite heavy.
I am trying to replace a lot of my sugar with maple syrup in cookies, smoothies, etc. and still experimenting with good results so far. This salmon is so delicious!
3 Tablespoons (45 ml) maple syrup
1 1/2 Tbsp. 22 ml soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. (22 ml) sesame oil
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbsp. (15 ml) grated fresh ginger
1/8 (0.5) hot chilli paste
In small bowl, whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic,
ginger and hot chilli paste.
Reserve 2 Tbsp. (30 ml) of the marinade for brushing and set aside.
4 (1 inch) salmon steaks, about 6 ounces each
2 green onions
1) Place salmon steaks in shallow glass baking dish large enough to hold steaks
in single layer. Pour remaining marinade over steaks and turn to coat evenly;
Let stand for 10 minutes, turning over several times.
2) Place steaks on greased barbecue grill over medium high heat.
Brush with some of the reserved marinade. Cook 10 minutes, or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once and brushing with marinade.
3) Meanwhile, diagonally slice green onions into 1 inch pieces.
Transfer grilled salmon to platter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.Sprinkle with green onions.
Makes 4 servings.
