Maple Mustard Grilled Salmon
Salmon is a regular guest at our table, often grilled with this simple sauce. Its sweet and pungent flavour easily stands up to the richness of the fish. Whenever possible we choose wild Pacific salmon; it’s the most sustainable choice available. We’re also big fans of farm-raised Atlantic salmon. It’s much better for us, and the environment, than beef or meat every day.
lots of sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup of maple syrup
1/2 cup of grainy mustard
Whisk the maple syrup and mustard together. Place the salmon in a small pan or resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over the salmon and marinate for 1 or 2 hours, or even overnight.
Build a hardwood fire and let it die down to a thick bed of glowing coals, or preheat your barbecue to its highest setting.
Grill the salmon fillets for about 5 minutes on the first side, a little less on the second side. Serve at once.
