Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Chill 40 mins Cook 5 mins Grill 20 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup low-calorie pancake syrup
  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 4 long sweet potatoes (about 1-1/2 pounds total), scrubbed
  • 2 medium-size onions, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rings (see Note)
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Make It

1. Shake soy sauce and syrup in plastic resealable food storage bag to mix. Add salmon. Close; refrigerate 40 minutes.

2. Microwave sweet potatoes on HIGH for about 5 minutes, until slightly tender; let cool. Cut diagonally across into 1/4- to 1/2-inch-thick slices; spray slices on both sides with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

3. Heat gas grill to medium-high or prepare charcoal grill with medium-hot coals. Remove salmon from marinade; pour marinade into small saucepan and set aside. Grill salmon for about 5 minutes per side, or until opaque in the center; remove and keep warm. Add sweet potatoes and onions and grill for about 5 minutes. Turn and add asparagus; cook vegetables another 5 minutes, turning asparagus frequently. Test doneness of sweet potato slices with a knife. Sprinkle salmon and vegetables with salt and pepper.

4. Meanwhile, boil marinade in saucepan over high heat for 5 minutes, until thickened. Brush salmon and vegetables with marinade.Note: If not using a grill basket, secure onion slices with a toothpick.
