You can also cook salmon on the grill in the same amount of time.
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
How to Make It
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; stir with a whisk.
Place salmon, skin side down, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Brush with maple mixture. Broil 10 to 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, brushing with maple mixture after 5 minutes and again after 10 minutes.
I LOVED it. My husband, who dislikes salmon in general, liked it enough to eat his entire filet.
I doubled the recipe, added 1/4 at first, and then basted/added every 3 min or so. This gave a nice, thicker caramelization. Served it with rice, had an almost teriyaki-barbecue style taste. Thumbs up.
This recipe is amazing and worthy for guests, not to mention extremely quick to prepare. I like my salmon well done and this recipe works well for that--the result is a nice, almost crispy coating of the sauce on the salmon. This recipe is great for those who are not particularly partial to salmon as well as those who are. I served it with Fresh Lemon Rice and grilled asparagus.
