Looking for NB's Salmon Recipe with Maple Syrup glaze

If Nature Boy or others who know what went into his delicious looking salmon from eggfest 2003, I'd appreciate a posting of it. I could have sworn it was on the archives, but I couldn't find it. Also, I'd like recommendations for time and temp for a 1 lb salmon filet (skin on one side). Thanks,[p]Aron

    Aron, can't find Nature Boy's recipe but would like to add it if you come across it. As for time an dtemps, I looked through and found these pairings: 400 and 10 min/side; 300 and 12 min/side;350-400 and 27 min (planked); 300 and 30 minutes; 375 and 12 min/side; 225 and 30-45 min[p]I did find this for NB's Miso Salmon. Was this what he fixed:

    “Thanks to RhumAndJerk for the book, and thanks to the book for the idea! The book: "The
    Asian Grill" Barich & Ingalls. I did the recipe with some variations/substitutions. Not sure how
    much of it had to do with the super fresh Wild Alaskan King Salmon that I used, but this was
    extremely tasty. The miso added a wonderful contrast of flavors.”
    � 1/3 cup miso paste (this might be white, yellow or red)
    � 1 egg yolk
    � 4 TBS Sake
    � 3 TBS brown sugar
    � 3 TBS broth (Japanese broth (dashi) or chicken broth)
    � 1 TBS your favorite soy sauce
    � 1 tsp Sriracha Red Chili Sauce
    � 1 tsp onion powder
    � 1 LB Salmon filet
    � Heat the miso in a double boiler to soften.
    � Add the egg yolk, sake, brown sugar, broth, soy sauce, chili sauce, onion powder to the miso to
    make a paste.
    � Cut the filets into thick strips to allow more surface area for crusting.
    � Slather the filets with the paste, and let sit 30-60 minutes.
    � Grill 4-5 minutes a side at 500-550 (brushing additional paste on before and after flipping) until
    nicely crusted, and just flaking.

    YB,[p]Just what I was looking for--thanks.

    Wise One,
    Thanks for the times and temps. I'm intrigued by this recipe too, so maybe another day (YB just posted the maple syrup one above, so I'll try it tonight). If you can find eggfest pics, I remember it looked fantastic.

    I see someone posted a link, but for future reference, the "recipe" is on the Ragin' River Rub bottle, too.[p]TNW

    Aron, I emailed NB as well, but let me know the measurements you used (lbs of salmon, tbs of rub, syrup and butter) so I can update my recipes. Thanks.

    The Naked Whiz,[p]Thanks--I still need to get around to buying my dizzy pig products. I'm trying to make room on my spice shelf first and will probably not get a chance until I move in September. Then I can just trash the spices I don't use as much and replace them with the Dizzy products. I've been drooling over those pictures on the website with the piles of spices surrounding the bottles and hearing the stories.
    For today, I'm gonna just substitute some old bay for ragin' river and proceed with the maple and butter glaze that sounded so great.
