Maple-Sriracha Glazed Grilled Alaskan Red Salmon

1 cup grade-A maple syrup
1 tbsp. Sriracha hot sauce
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Four 6-oz. portions Alaska red salmon fillets
Salt and pepper to taste
Non-stick spray

For the Glaze: Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and reduce over low heat. Reduce by half. Cool to room temperature and reserve for basting the salmon. This can be made ahead. 

For the salmon: Preheat your favorite outdoor grill. I prefer charcoal. Pat the salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Spray the salmon with a light coating of non-stick spray. Place fillets presentation-side down. Cook until forming grill marks. Flip the salmon and continue cooking. After flipping, baste with the Maple-Sriracha Glaze. Cook the salmon to an internal temperature of 115 degrees. This can be measured with a probe thermometer. This will ensure the fish remains moist. Baste with additional glaze before serving. Serve immediately.
