Ingredients for servings


  • 2 tablespoons pure Maple Syrup

  • 3 tablespoons dark Balsamic Vinegar

  • 2 fillets raw Salmon about 140g each (the skin-on type should hold up better on the BBQ)

  • to taste Sea Salt

  • to taste Black Pepper

  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil


  • Combine balsamic vinegar and maple syrup in a resealable bag. Seal the salmon fillets in the bag and marinate for at least 10 minutes (or longer, if you have time) while you prepare the grill.

  • Lightly oil the grill, then preheat to medium-high.

  • Transfer the salmon fillets from the bag to a plate, pouring remaining marinade over the filet. Sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper, then place filets skin-side up on the grill for 2 minutes. Flip the salmon (skin-side down) and grill until cooked, about 6 minutes depending on the thickness of the filet.

  • Serve with brown rice or quinoa, a side salad, or sauteed veggies if desired.


The key to a perfect crisp is a sparing amount of cooking spray so that extra fat doesn’t absorb into the quesadilla.
