Maple-Glazed Salmon

Go fish! For a tasty and healthy meal, fishy dishes can't be beat.  Research shows protein foods like salmon, which are rich in omega-3 oils, help protect against heart disease. So, let your heart be light, and enjoy this delicious Grilled Maple-Glazed Salmon over mixed greens with a whole grain hard roll for a tasty lunch.  Or serve it for a special dinner with couscous, grilled asparagus and Roasted Bosc Pears in Raspberry Sauce (another great recipe from the same cookbook).

(Makes 4 servings)    

1/4 cup Vermont maple syrup
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon or stone-ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot, if desired
1 1/4-pound salmon fillet
2 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions         

Mix all ingredients except salmon and scallions.  

Cut salmon fillet into 4 serving pieces. Place fish in shallow glass or plastic dish. Drizzle marinade over fish reserving about 1/4-cup marinade to serve over cooked fish. Refrigerate about 30 minutes.

Heat oven to 400°. Remove fish from marinade; set aside marinade. Place fish in baking dish. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, basting occasionally with marinade, until fish flakes easily with fork.

To serve, drizzle reserved 1/4-cup marinade over fish; top with scallions.

Variation

Grilled Maple-Glazed Salmon: Instead of baking, place on grill rack,  cover and grill fish 5 to 6 inches from medium coals 4 minutes. Turn fish; brush with marinade; cover and grill about 4 minutes longer or until fish is opaque and flakes easily with fork.
