The smoky-sweet flavor in this grilled salmon recipe comes from the combination of ancho chili powder and maple syrup that's brushed on the fish. Find ancho chile powder in the spice section of most supermarkets (substitute 2 teaspoons regular chili powder if you can't find it). Use a spatula to separate the fish from its skin after grilling. Round out the meal with a simple spring salad.
