Maple Glazed Salmon
½ teaspoon chili powder
½- teaspoon ground Ancho chile powder
¼-teaspoon ground cumin
¼-teaspoon brown sugar
1-teaspoon kosher salt
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
2 TBSP pure maple syrup
1. Preheat broiler.
2. Combine first 6 ingredients; rub spice mixture evenly over flesh side of fillets.
Place fish on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Brush fillets evenly with syrup; broil an additional minute to achieve crusty exterior. (Watch closely so as not to burn.)
ALTERNATE COOKING METHOD (preferred by Chef Jill)-
Preheat non-stick skillet over high heat. Spray with cooking spray or ½ tsp. olive oil. Place fish flesh side down, sear for 3 minutes. Turn over and cook fish 3 minutes longer. Brush top of filets with maple syrup and turn over for 1 minute to achieve a crunchy maple crust.
Flip to flesh side up for serving. (Skin will come off easily at this point if you choose)
