This recipe is from Saltscapes.
4-6 salmon fillets, skin attached
1 cup (250 mL) maple syrup
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons (30 mL) apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon (15 mL) Worcestershire sauce
1-2 teaspoons (5-10 mL) pepper sauce
1 teaspoon (5 mL) salt
1 teaspoon (5 mL) dry mustard
Prepare sauce by combining syrup, onion, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, pepper sauce, salt, and dry mustard in a small pan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 4 or 5 minutes and set aside to cool.
Sauce can be stored in the refrigerator before using.
Heat barbecue to medium-hot. Lightly paint salmon with the maple glaze and lay the fillets skin-side up on the grill. Carefully turn fillets and continue to cook skin-side down. Baste fish with glaze several times as it continues to cook. Fish is done when it easily flakes, about 8 to 10 minutes.
