Ingredients

3 Tablespoons pure maple syrup

2 teaspoons fresh grated ginger root*

2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons soy sauce

1½ teaspoons fresh minced garlic

1 bunch green onions, trimmed and sliced lengthwise (for planking only)

1½ pounds Alaska Salmon

Directions

  1. Soak wood plank in water 30 minutes to 2 hours. Blend maple syrup, ginger, lime juice, soy sauce and garlic. Brush or spoon 1/2 to 1 teaspoon glaze on each Alaska Salmon portion or all onto large fillet/salmon side. Let the salmon rest 5 minutes before cooking. Heat grill to medium-high heat. Pat wood plank with paper towels and spray-coat or lightly oil one side. Place green onions on plank; top with salmon. Grill salmon using indirect heat (not directly over heat) in covered grill for 10 to 15 minutes. Cook just until salmon is opaque throughout.
  2. *Add 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes for additional heat, if desired.

Cook’s Note

This recipe works great whether you use a plank or cook straight on the grill. Or, bake at 400°F (6 to 7 inches from heat source) for 10 to 15 minutes.
