Guajillo Maple Salmon

By Anthony Serrano

Grilling a whole salmon fillet with guajillo maple glaze makes for a great presentation and an awesome dinner for my family & friends! Sometimes though, grilling fish on a grill can take a little patience and practice. That’s why I love reducing the hassle by using indirect heat on my Bull Gas Grill to perfectly cook my salmon every time.

A whole salmon is really easy to cook and needs only a few ingredients to bring out all those awesome flavors. I like going with a combination of sweet & spicy which is why I pair the guajillo with the maple syrup.

Chef Anthony Pro Tip – Use a heavy-duty baking pan to grill your salmon on. Because of the weight & heat, using a thin baking sheet will cause it to bend or warp.

  • 1 whole salmon fillet
  • 1 tbsp guajillo chili powder
  • 1 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp za'atar seasoning
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup southwestern mustard
  1. In a bowl mix together chili powder, sea salt, za'atar seasoning, maple syrup & mustard.
  2. Line a heavy-duty sheet tray with parchment paper and place salmon on top.
  3. Evenly spread guajillo maple syrup mixture over salmon.
  4. Grill on Bull Grill at 350 degrees using indirect heat until it reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees.
  5. Rest for 10 minutes and slice & serve.
