Grilled Glazed Salmon

Recipe adapted from:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 cloves crushed garlic
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 cup SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener, Granulated
  • 1 1/3 pounds salmon fillet

1.In a shallow baking pan, combine the olive oil, water, red wine vinegar, garlic, garlic salt, black pepper and basil. Place salmon filet in the marinade meat side down, if skin is still on. Marinate for 30 minutes.
2.Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil grate.
3.Coat the salmon filet lightly with SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener. Place on grill and cook 12 minutes per side. Baste with marinade periodically while cooking. Salmon is done, when it flakes easily with a fork.

Notes & Tips:
I ran out of red wine vinegar at about 1/4 cup so I just used balsamic for the other 1/4 cup. At first I didn't think I liked the marinade, but the more I ate the more I liked it. The sweetness that the sprinkling of Splenda adds just the perfect amount of sweetness.
