  1. If using a cedar plank to grill, submerge in a container at least three hours before cooking. Fill a glass with water and place it on top of the plank to keep it submerged. 

  2. About 30 minutes before you plan to grill, take the salmon out of the refrigerator. While the salmon comes to temperature, stir together the chipotle pepper, garlic clove, pure maple syrup, adobo sauce, apple cider vinegar, cinnamon, cloves, smoked paprika and salt. Liberally brush the marinade onto the salmon. Place on the cedar plank or foil with cooking spray. 

  3. Heat the grill on high. Once it's hot, drop the temperature to medium. Place the salmon on the grill, close the lid and cook for about 12-15 or until the internal temperature is to your liking. 

  4. Remove from grill. Garnish with parsley. Serve by directly scooping the salmon meat from the skin. 

Recipe Notes

NOTE - If you are gluten free, read the labels on your adobo sauce to ensure no wheat is listed.
