Difficulty Rating: 1/5
  • Salmon
  • 1/2 cup(s) maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoon(s) dijon-style or coarse-ground mustard
  • 1 tablespoon(s) soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon(s) bourbon (optional)
  • 1 salmon fillet (2 to 2-1/2 pounds), center-cut, skin-on, about 1-1/2 inches thick
  • 1 Traeger Salmon Shake, or coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lemon wedges for serving

Preperation Steps
  • In a small saucepan, combine the maple syrup, mustard, soy sauce, and bourbon, if desired. Warm over low heat, whisking. Keep warm.
  • Remove any pin bones from the salmon fillet (you can feel the bones with your fingertips) with kitchen tweezers or needle-nosed pliers. Season the flesh-side of the salmon with the Traeger Salmon Shake. Using a soft pastry brush, apply a thin coating of the maple glaze to the flesh-side of the salmon.(Work over foil to minimize clean-up.) Wait 5 to 10 minutes, and apply another coat.
  • When ready to cook, start the Traeger Grill on smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 450 degrees F (High) and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Arrange the fillet on the grill grate, skin-side down. Bake the salmon for 10 minutes. Brush with any remaining glaze, and continue to cook for 5 to 10 minutes more, or until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily when pressed with a fork. (The temperature when read on an instant-read meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part should be 140 degrees F.) Transfer to a platter or plates and serve with lemon wedges.
