Maple Mustard Salmon

1/4 cup (50 mL) maple syrup
1/4 cup (50 mL) Dijon mustard
1 tbsp (15 mL) balsamic vinegar
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) freshly ground pepper
2 lb (1 kg) salmon fillet

Combine all ingredients except salmon in a double plastic bag. Reserve 2 tbsp (25 mL) marinade; set aside. Add salmon to bag and squeeze bag to coat salmon with marinade; seal bag. Let stand 20 minutes. Remove salmon from marinade; discard marinade. Place salmon, skin side down, on a piece of foil. Trim foil so it is slightly larger than fillet. With lid down, cook salmon over medium heat on natural gas barbecue for 10 - 12 minutes per inch (2.5 cm) of thickness or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Baste occasionally with reserved marinade. Serves 6.
