"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Katy Chen


1 (2-lb) piece center-cut salmon fillet with skin (1 1/2 inches thick)
1/4 c. maple syrup
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. grated ginger
1 tsp. orange zest
1/4 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. black pepper (optional)

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line bottom of a broiler pan with foil, then oil rack of pan.

Boil soy sauce and maple syrup in a small saucepan over moderate heat until glaze is reduced to 1/3 cup (takes about 5 minutes).

Arrange salmon, skin side down, on rack of broiler pan and pat dry. Reserve 1 1/2 tablespoon of glaze in a small bowl for brushing after broiling. Brush salmon generously with some of remaining glaze.

Let stand 5 minutes, then brush with more glaze. Place salmon in middle of oven for 10 minutes. Turn on broiler and brush salmon with glaze again, then broil 4 to 5 inches from heat until just cooked through (about 3-5 minutes).

Transfer salmon with 2 wide metal spatulas to a platter, then brush with reserved glaze using a clean brush.

Note: You can also use divided portions of salmon instead of one large piece. This entree goes well with rice and steamed broccoli and the kids usually love it.
