  1. Combine soy sauce, maple syrup, garlic, ginger, pepper, and salt in a shallow container with a tight-fitting lid. Place salmon, flesh-side down, in the container and seal. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Once heated, turn down one side to low heat.
  3. Place salmon, skin-side down, over low heat on the preheated grill and close the lid. Allow to cook, basting once with reserved marinade, until easily flaked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Salmon will easily remove from the grill by sliding a spatula between salmon and the skin.

Oiled my salmon and got it on the grill. I added more maple syrup and basted the fish while it was on the grill. Wow. It was delicious. This took me 12 minutes to grill. 6 minutes per side.

Really good as is! Just watch it on the grill. The syrup in the marinade burned a little.

I made this recipe as is and we loved it. Will do it again but will add half the salt as it was a bit too salty because of the soy sauce. I didn’t find it too sweet at all. Depends on your prefe...

Too sweet and the maple flavor is too strong for our tastes. It was okay,but if I make it again, I will replace the maple syrup with honey and add more ginger. Although this will make it a compl...
