Salmon with Brown Sugar Mustard Glaze

This is a recipe I found in Weber's Art of the Grill. The glaze on the salmon is excellent, creating nice crispy, caramelized sides. They cook the salmon on foil, I placed mine on a grill rack designed for fish. Their recipe also uses 2 teaspoons of grated fresh ginger, which I omitted in my recipe. I also read the recipe wrong, so I added too much honey and butter, but it still tasted great.

Salmon with Brown Sugar Mustard Glaze

1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp. unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 whole salmon fillet, about 1 lb.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter, honey and brown sugar together. Remove from heat, stir in mustard, soy sauce and olive oil. Allow to cool.
Place salmon, skin side down, on a large sheet of aluminum foil. Trim foil to leave a 1/2 inch border around the edge of the salmon. Coat fish with sauce.
Grill salmon over indirect heat until edges brown and center is opaque 15 to 20 minutes. Serve.
