We've married pure maple syrup with fresh ginger and lime for a sophisticated taste with little effort.


Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2-in. piece fresh ginger
  • 1 lime
  • 1 tsp sesame oil , or 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 1-in. salmon steaks

Instructions

  • Preheat barbecue and oil grill. Pour maple syrup into a small bowl. Finely mince or grate 2 tablespoons (30 mL) ginger and add to maple syrup. Squeeze juice from half a lime, about 1 tablespoon (15 mL). Stir juice and oil into maple mixture.
  • Generously brush salmon with maple mixture. Place on hot grill. Barbecue, brushing often with maple mixture and turning once, until fish is cooked as you like, from 5 to 6 minutes a side. For extra zing, squeeze juice from remaining half of lime over top of hot steaks. Serve right away with a mixture of wild and white rices and long thin green beans.
