Maple-Glazed Salmon
Yield: 4 servings

For the glaze:

2  tablespoons maple syrup
1 1/2  tablespoons apple juice
1 1/2  tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2  teaspoons hoisin sauce
1 1/2  peeled and grated teaspoons, fresh ginger
1 1/2  teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4  teaspoon five-spice powder

4  (6-ounce) salmon fillets (about 1 inch thick)
Cooking spray

1. Combine ingredients for the glaze in a large ziplock plastic bag or lidded container large enough to hold the fish.

2. Add salmon to the bag or container; seal. Marinate in refrigerator for 15 minutes.

3. Preheat broiler while salmon is marinating.

4. Remove salmon from the bag, reserving marinade. Place salmon fillets, skin side down, on a broiler rack coated with cooking spray.

5. Basting salmon occasionally with the reserved marinade, broil for 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
