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. —Phyllis Schmalz of Kansas City, Kansas

Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar, chili sauce, sugar, garlic, parsley and seasonings.
  2. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill salmon, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting occasionally with sauce.
<B>Editor's Note:</B> To broil the salmon, place on a broiler pan. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with a fork, brushing occasionally with sauce.
