Orange-Maple Glazed Salmon

1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
3 TBSP maple syrup
2 TBSP orange juice
24 oz. or larger wild-caught (Alaskan) salmon fillet
salt and pepper (to taste)

Combine vinegar, maple syrup, and orange juice. Pour over salmon fillet and marinate for 3 hours (or so).

Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat. Pour marinade off the salmon into a small saucepan, and place salmon on the grill. Bring marinade to a boil, boil for 1 minute, then baste the salmon with it as the salmon is cooking. Grill until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, and serve.

*Option 2: Combine marinade ingredients, skip the marinating step, and baste salmon with the marinade liquid. It is not as thick (since it's not cooked), and contributes a lighter flavor to the cooked salmon. Great option for last-minute dinner decisions.
