Broiled Salmon w/ Maple Glaze

Ingredients

1-1 1/2 pounds raw salmon

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 Tablespoon toasted sesame oil

2 Tablespoons rice vinegar

2 Tablespoons soy sauce or tamari, for gluten-free

1 garlic clove minced

1/8 teaspoon dry ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

About 1 lb broccoli, if desired, steamed to desired doneness

For the Maple Sesame Glaze

3 Tablespoon maple syrup

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

2 Tablespoons soy sauce/tamari
Pinch dry ground ginger

½ teaspoon minced chives

1 Tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Directions

{1}

In a large bowl or baking dish, combine olive oil, maple syrup, sesame oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce/tamari, garlic, ginger, and crushed red pepper, and whisk well until combined.


{2}

Add salmon to the dish or place everything in a ziplock bag, then refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes (I marinated it for a couple of hours).


{3}

Prepare the glaze, as per the Note below.


{4}

Preheat the broiler in your oven. Line the bottom of your broiler pan or a baking sheet with aluminum foil, and spray the top of the broiler pan or a wire rack liberally with cooking spray or olive oil.


{5}

Remove salmon from the marinade and place directly on the broiler pan or wire rack. Pour some of the excess marinade over the salmon, sprinkle with a little bit of salt and pepper, then place directly under the broiler.

{6}

Cook for 10-16 minutes, depending on the salmon’s thickness, until opaque and flakes easily with a fork and it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.


{7}

Remove and serve immediately with broccoli and Maple Sesame Glaze drizzled over both. Serve the extra glaze on the side.


For the Maple Sesame Glaze:
In a small bowl, combine the ingredients and stir until smooth.
