Firecracker Salmon Steaks

Red pepper flakes and cayenne provide the fiery flavor that gives these salmon steaks their name. Basting the fish with the zippy sauce while grilling creates a glossy glaze.


4 servings


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
4 salmon steaks (6 ounces each)


Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, chili sauce, sugar, garlic, parsley and seasonings. Grill salmon, covered, over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, brushing occasionally with sauce.
