Wild Salmon


1 cup teriyaki sauce

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup fresh orange juice

8 garlic cloves, pressed

1 entire half side wild salmon, rinsed and drained

Lime slices, for garnish


Combine teriyaki sauce, maple syrup, orange juice and garlic in large 2-gallon zip-top bag to mix. Add salmon to bag, putting flesh side down into marinade, and lay flat before sealing.

Allow this to set in the refrigerator at least 3 hours before broiling, more if stronger color and taste is desired.

Set broiler to 400 degrees and broil salmon for 18 minutes for medium rare. Adjust doneness by adding/subtracting time.

Garnish with lime slices and serve at room temperature.

Makes 10-12 servings.
