Z Grill Salmon With Balsamic Glaze
2 8 oz. Salmon Fillets
1 Tbsp. Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Tbsp. Sugar
Combine the fresh ground pepper and sugar; set aside.
Place the Balsamic Vinegar in a small, heavy bottomed sauce pan. On medium heat, bring to a low boil. Adjust the heat to maintain a steady simmer and reduce the Balsamic vinegar until it resembles a syrup, or until it can coat the back of a spoon. Let cool. Add the Grand Marnier and pinch of salt to taste.
When ready to cook, start the Z Grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High (450F) and preheat the grill with the lid closed for 10 to 15 minutes.
Season the salmon evenly with the pepper and sugar mixture and place flesh-side down on the hot grill, preferably in the very front to get a good sear.
Once they are seared, move them to the center of the grill and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until they reach an internal temperature of 145F. Drizzle with glaze.
