Maple Ginger Glazed Salmon

1 cup of pure maple syrup
4 Tbsp soy sauce
3 Tbsp minced fresh ginger
2 Tbsp minced garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tsp sesame oil
1-2 tsp dried red pepper flakes (depending on how your spice tastes)

Combine all ingredients in small saucepan and bring to a boil. Simmer for about 30 minutes, or until sauce is reduced and thickened. Spread on salmon. Reserve remaining sauce. Heat to serve with the salmon.

Ideally, plank it....soak cedar plank in water for 1/2 hour. Place scallions on plank, and salmon fillet skin side down on top of scallions. Spread sauce on salmon, and grill for about 20 minutes depending on thickness of salmon.
