Grilled Candied Salmon Recipe
Barbecue and Grilling,
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 12 min
3/4 cup genuine maple syrup
1/4 cup soy sauce
salmon filets or 1 large salmon filet
1/4 teaspoon coarsely-ground
In a small bowl, combine the maple syrup and soy sauce. Pour the marinade into a large
plastic re-sealable bag; add salmon filets. Press out the air and seal the bag tightly,
then turn the bag several times to distribute the marinade around the salmon. Refrigerate
a minimum of 4 hours and as long as 24 hours, turning salmon frequently.
Barbecue grill to medium-high temperature (350 degrees F). Remove salmon from marinade and generously
spread olive oil on both sides of each filet. Place salmon onto a large piece of aluminum
foil. Pat top side of salmon only with coarse black pepper. Sprinkle coarse salt over the top.
Place salmon with aluminum foil onto hot grill, cover barbecue with lid, and open any vents. Cook, pepper side up, approximately 8 to 12 minutes or until a
meat thermometer registers an
internal temperature of 140 degrees F. (salmon will be slightly opaque in thickest part).
NOTE: During this time the salmon continues to cook (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the grill)
and the juices redistribute.
Approximately cooking times for salmon:
1/4 to 1/3-inch - 3 to 4 minutes
1/2 to 3/4-inch - 4 to 6 minutes
1 to 1 1/2-inch - 8 to 12 minutes

asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the
Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. Originally designed for professional users, the
Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world. To learn more about this excellent
