Maple Chery Glazed Salmon6 (5 ounce) SALMON FILLETS
1/2 cup dry tart cherries
1/3 cup cherry juice

black pepper (to taste)

MAPLE CHERRY GLAZE (use 1/2 cup)
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cinnamon stick
2 cups cherry juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Make the glaze by bringing the cherry juice to a simmer in a non-reactive saucepan and reduce to 1/2 cup.

  2. Add the remaining ingredients; bring to a quick boil, reduce temperature and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and stir in vanilla.

  3. Cool to room temperature and then chill.

  4. Preheat grill on highest setting; rub the salmon with oil; season with salt and black pepper.

  5. Divide the glaze using half to baste the salmon while cooking and the other half to drizzle over the salmon when serving.

  6. Before cooking the salmon, place the 1/3 cup cherry juice and dry tart cherries in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, turn off heat, cover and allow to stand to reconstitute while the fish cooks.

  7. Place the salmon on the grate and turn down the flame to the medium setting; baste the salmon with the glaze and grill for approximately 6 minutes on each side or until it flakes easily.

  8. Drizzle the salmon with the cherry glaze and top with reconstituted cherries.
