Uncooked Salmon Maple Syrup Chipotle Pepper Smoked Paprika Red Pepper Chili Flakes Grapefruit Juice Grapefruit Cooking Oil Sea Salt
Combine maple syrup, chipotle pepper, smoked paprika, red pepper chili flakes and grapefruit juice in a bowl to create the marinade and glaze. Lay out salmon evenly onto a baking sheet. Pour half the juice from the marinade over the salmon.
Coat salmon pieces with marinade using a brush. Place grapefruit slices on top of the salmon. Cover with plastic wrap and marinate for 4-8 hours in the fridge. Cover remaining marinade with plastic and refrigerate.
Heat oven or grill to 400°F. Move salmon to a double layer of oiled or buttered foil. Top with remaining marinade. Wrap foil up around the sides of the salmon to prevent edges from burning/overcooking and to keep juices from leaking out.
Grill for approximately 9-15 minutes until temperature reach 125-145° in the thickest part. Sprinkle with sea salt to taste.
