Grilled Salmon with Maple Sauce
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
The maple glaze is a sweet and savory sauce and simple to make. We used wild salmon because it is lower in fat and calories.
1 1/4 pounds salmon, wild, steaks or filet
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup chicken broth, reduced sodium (or vegetable broth, reduced sodium)
1 shallot(s), chopped
2 teaspoons soy sauce, low sodium
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon pepper, black, ground
1 tablespoon olive oil
Heat a large skillet over medium to medium high heat. Cut the salmon into 4 equal pieces and season with garlic salt and pepper. Add olive oil to the skillet. Place salmon in skillet and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes on per side until cooked through. Meanwhile, mix the syrup, soy sauce, broth and corn starch until fully dissolved. Remove the salmon to a plate. Place the skillet back on the stove and add the shallots to the pan. Cook the shallots for 1 to 2 minutes over medium heat. Add syrup and broth mixture and cook for about 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sauce will thicken as it cooks. Pour sauce over the salmon or serve in a cup to pass at the table.
