Pepper-Crusted, Maple-Glazed Salmon

Pepper-Crusted, Maple-Glazed Salmon

This easy marinade creates a candied salmon fillet that melts in your mouth under a black pepper crust. This recipe is from our friend Bob Blumer, author of The Surreal Gourmet cookbook series.

For the marinade:

3/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce

4 salmon fillets, about 6 ounces each, skin removed

1/4 cup cracked black pepper
Vegetable oil spray

To prepare the marinade: In a small bowl whisk together the syrup and soy sauce. Pour the marinade into a large plastic resealable bag, and add the fillets. Press out the air and seal the bag tightly, then turn the bag several times to distribute the marinade Set in a large bowl and refrigerate for as long as possible (a minimum of 4 hours, but ideally 24 hours to do it justice). Turn salmon every few hours.

Place pepper on a small plate. Remove salmon from marinade and generously spray both sides of each fillet with oil. Pat top side only into cracked pepper to coat. Grill fillets, pepper side up, over Direct High heat for about 6 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Avoid overcooking the fillets. Salmon is best when the color has turned to a pale pink, but the fish is still moist throughout. Serve immediately on warmed plates.

Makes 4 servings.

Note: When multiplying the recipe for larger groups, it is not necessary to increase the marinade proportionately. Just mix enough marinade (in the same 3 parts maple syrup to 1 part soy sauce proportions) to cover all the fillets.

le secret:The longer the salmon marinates up to 48 hours) the better it is.

tips for advance prep:Although the fish can be placed in its marinade up to 48 hours in advance, it should only be peppered and cooked just before serving.
