Serves 4 people

2 6-OZ salmon fillets with skin 1/3 cup maple syrup 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce 1 TSP adobo sauce ¼ TSP garlic salt Hollandaise (mix or from scratch)

In small bowl whisk together maple syrup, soy sauce, adobo and garlic salt.  Place salmon skin down in an 8x8 glass dish.  Pour mixture over salmon, flip salmon over and marinate skin side up for at least 3 hours (marinating longer will cover up fishy flavor).

Cook salmon on grill over medium heat 4-6 minutes skin side up, then about 4-6 minutes skin side down.  Salmon grilling tips here.

Remove salmon from grill, make sure to remove skin thoroughly.  Serve with hollandaise on the side or spooned over salmon.

To pair with this recipe I like Pinot Noir.  Pinot is a great wine to pair with salmon anyway, but the maple-soy flavors really work well with the nuances of a quality Pinot Noir.  Some of the Pinots I've found to be ideal with this are Soter Beacon Hill from Oregon, Klee from Oregon, Aresti from Chile or Sebastiani Pinot from CA.
