Maple Lime Grilled Salmon

Grilled salmon salad is probably my favorite meal. This grilled salmon has a slight maple flavor, offset by fresh lime, all to compliment the subtle flavor of wild salmon and give it dimension. I always serve it with a green salad made with avocados and a small amount of balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup 2 tablespoons orange juice 4 (6-ounce) wild salmon fillets 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 8 fresh lime, wedges


1) Combine first 3 ingredients in a large zip-top plastic bag; add fish. Seal and marinate in the refrigerator for an hour or two.
2) Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Remove fish from the bag while reserving the marinade. Pour marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 2 tablespoons (about 5 minutes).
3) Place fish on grill rack or pan that are coated with cooking spray; grill 4 minutes on each side or until fish easily flakes when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness, basting occasionally with marinade.  
4) Remove fish from grill; sprinkle with salt and pepper and squeeze fresh lime (very important).
