    JanuaryBride's Note:

    I took a recipe for Swedish Maple Cookies and put a spin on it to create this wonderful sweet topping for grilled salmon; when we were in Sweden, salmon was on every menu, whether it was cured, smoked, baked, poached, or grilled. Being someone who "tolerates" salmon in a house full of those who adore it, I find that I prefer my salmon sweet rather than savory. Recipe developed for ZWT6 Team SSaSSy with Scandinavia in mind! NOTE: You will have quite a bit of butter leftover which would be amazing on toast or a bagel; feel free to half the amount of butter if you just want to make what you need for the recipe.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 cup softened salted butter
    • 1/4 teaspoon maple extract (Mapleine if you are in Sweden)
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 tablespoon corn syrup (I used a light, lower calorie version and it worked great)
    • 1 1/2 lbs atlantic salmon, cut into 4 servings
    • 8 tablespoons chopped candied walnuts (may sub regular walnuts)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Remove the salmon from the refrigerator and let come to room temperature.
    2. 2
      Cream together first five ingredients with a hand mixer (or food processor) and leave at room temperature.
    3. 3
      Preheat grill to medium (about 350-375 degrees).
    4. 4
      Season with salt and coat with olive oil. Oil the grill. Place the salmon, skin side down, on the clean, preheated grill.
    5. 5
      Cook the salmon for 5 minutes. As the salmon cooks it will turn from translucent orange to pink.
    6. 6
      Turn the salmon over and cook for another 5 minutes.
    7. 7
      NOTE: I cooked mine in the oven in a grill packet for 15 minutes at 350 degrees and it was perfect. I also remove the skin prior to cooking when I use an oven vs. the grill.
    8. 8
      Remove salmon from the grill and put on individual serving plates (skin side down. .or you can remove the skin before serving).
    9. 9
      Top each piece of salmon with a few dollops of the butter you made (this will melt and become your sauce) and top each with 2 T walnuts.

      I made this using 2 tablespoons olive oil because of the healthier fat then butter. I used maple syrup in place of the maple extract and corn syrup, plain walnuts. Delish. I did grill it 5 minutes per side. Made for ZWT6 Thanks.

      I thought this was a "3" in terms of flavor, but a "5" in the cooking technique of 350 degrees for 15 minutes. The salmon came out perfectly. The topping was just a little too sweet for me; I think one could easily omit the corn syrup. ZWT6
