Maple Glazed Salmon

Maple-Glazed Salmon
From Cooking Light Magazine

Find ancho chile powder in the spice section of most supermarkets (substitute 2 teaspoons regular chili powder if you can't find it). Use a spatula to separate the fish from its skin after grilling. Round out the spicy-sweet salmon with a simple spring salad.

2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground ancho chile powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon sea or kosher salt
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Cooking spray
1 teaspoon maple syrup

Prepare grill, heating to medium.
Combine first 5 ingredients. Sprinkle fish with salt; rub with paprika mixture.
Place fish on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 7 minutes. Drizzle fish with syrup; grill 1 minute or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 salmon fillet)
