Grilled Salmon with Maple Dijon Glaze

Grilled Salmon with Maple Dijon Glaze

This is not meant to be a plug for Costco, however, most of the ingredients I used for this recipe I bought at  Costco – like the salmon, organic maple syrup and cedar planks.

So now that the grilling weather is upon us (I think!?) be sure to go to Costco and get the cedar planks there! It’s a great buy! You get 10 in a pack and always in Costco fashion – reasonably priced too!!

 

GATHER YOUR INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 1/2lb Salmon
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2T Grainy Dijon Mustard
  • 2t Minced Fresh Ginger (peeled)
  • 1 Garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1/2t Dried Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Cedar Plank (soaked overnight)

 

MUY IMPORTANTE! translation – VERY IMPORTANT!

Soak the cedar plank over night! Since I’m using a whole fish here, you may need to cut it in half so they fit the cedar plank….so in this case, you may need to use two? In any event, be sure to soak the cedar plank on a deep cookie sheet. I also weigh it down with something heavy like a mug filled with water to keep the cedar plank from floating.

 

MAKE THE GLAZE:

In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup, mustard, ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes. You can even make this the same time as you’re soaking the cedar plank. This gives all the flavors a chance to blend together. That way the next day all you need to do is grill the salmon. See….

GRILL THE SALMON:

Preheat the grill to medium heat. Once the grill reaches desired temp, place the soaked plank on the hot grill.

Drizzle glaze over salmon reserving about 1/4 cup. My guests love having a side of the glaze so they can drizzle more as they wish.

Close the lid and cook salmon for 12-14 minutes for medium rare, 14 to 18 minutes for well done. NOTE: cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon!

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2lb Salmon
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 2T Grainy Dijon Mustard
  • 2t Minced Fresh Ginger (peeled)
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • 1/2t Dried Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Cedar Plank (this should be the same size of your salmon; soaked overnight)

Instructions

  1. Soak plank in water overnight. I find that soaking them in a deep cookie sheet works and I weigh it down with something like a canned food item. Be sure not to miss this part, as it’s important to soak them or else it’ll burn like disco inferno! 🕺🏼huh?!
  2. Make the glaze! Combine maple syrup, grainy dijon mustard, ginger, garlic and dried red pepper flakes in a small bowl.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Place soaked plank on hot grill.
  4. Reserve 1/4 cup of glaze on a separate bowl. Drizzle remaining glaze over salmon.
  5. Close the lid and cook salmon for 12-14 minutes for medium rare, 14 to 18 minutes for well done.
  6. Transfer cooked salmon to a serving platter and drizzle with the remaining glaze.

Notes

  • Grilling times will vary depending on the thickness of the salmon.
  • Serve salmon with grilled asparagus.
  • You can use filet of salmon instead of a whole piece of salmon.
  • Don’t forget to soak the cedar plank overnight!
