Grilled Maple Salmon Encrusted with Nuts

By Stuart Baum, Chicago, Illinois

A simple, delicious way to prepare salmon on the grill


4 Fresh Salmon Fillets (about 8 oz. each)
4 oz. Crown Maple Syrup (Light or Dark Amber)
1 cup walnuts, chopped (or your favorite nut)


1. Marinate the salmon in syrup for an hour. We used 2 oz. syrup per pound of salmon.
2. Encrust top of steak in chopped walnuts.
3. Grill on cedar plank until done.

We serve with grilled portobello mushrooms on the side, which complement the fish really well.
