Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon - Fabulous!

First, it was pizza for the disinterested teenager. He likes thick crust so I made it nice and thick. I made the dough in the bread machine, and topped his pie with smoked chicken and bacon. Came out great.

Now for the salmon. I made a glaze of maple syrup, dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and red chili paste. S & P on the salmon, and on the 400 degree egg it goes brushed with the glaze.

Flipped it a couple of times to get some char on it:

Here it is plated with a mango peach salsa:

Mango Peach Salsa

1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
1 ripe peach, peeled and diced
1/2 cup diced red onion
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded and minced
1 tomato, diced
chopped fresh cilanto
juiced of 1 lime
S & P to taste

It was delish. I will be making this again and again.

    Looks delicious Faith...now if I only liked fish... :laugh:

    Thanks for the salsa recipe though...we have tons of peaches on our tree and I was looking for a good salsa recipe...your timing is great. :)
  • Gorgeous

    Salmon looks outstanding and I love mango salsa
  • Kim, since you have so many peaches, you could use 2 peaches and leave out the mango, and I think it would still be great.

    Faith the salmon with your salsa looks divine! :)

    Mango peach or mango are some of my favorite salsas for both grouper and salmon. I've got some nice ripe peaches, so maybe I'll have some fish soon.

    Faith, that looks terrific.
    I do a similar glaze with two parts dark brown suger and one part spicy brown mustard, cooked on a plank.
    Really easy and delicious :)

    Great post Faith. Your cooks always look fabulous. Has you son tried his hand a egging something? Tim :)
  • GrillinGirl, what are the proportions of the glaze? I'm not a natural chef and need training wheels!

  • Tim, no, that is why he is the disinterested teenager! He doesn't understand it at all, and he just wants to eat, ya know? (that's what he says anyways).

  • Here you go, Thunderbunny,

    I cut this in 1/2 as I was only doing 2 pieces of salmon.

    1/4 cup maple syrup
    2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
    2 Tbsp. thai chili paste, or siracha, or whatever you have thats spicy

    Stir it up and brush it on.

    It goes great with the spicy sweetness of the salsa and it may be my favorite salmon recipe so far.

    Were you cooking on your mini here? This afternoon we were at a BGE local dealer, and my son asked the sales girl about the mini. She "informed" hin thst the mini was just a conversation peice. Surely, she is wrong. My medium is sometimes too little and sometimes it is too big.
  • Adult ADHD, yes the pizza and salmon were both coooked on the mini. It fits alot more than you think and it's perfect to take on picnics, etc.
