Salmon

We were so excited to go to the grocery store (Smith's) and discover a sale on fresh salmon filets. Salmon is one of our family's favorite meals--even my picky 6 year old loves it.

Here is our favorite recipe for salmon. We discovered it in a BHG grilling cook book but we usually end up broiling it.

Caramelized Salmon with Citrus Salsa

Rub:
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded orange peel
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Mix ingredients together

1. Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Place fish, skin side down, in a baking dish (I line it with tin foil and poke a few holes for the juices to run out).
2. Sprinkle rub evenly over the fish and rub in with your fingers. Cover and marinate for 8 to 12 hours. (We never leave it to marinate.)
3. Broil on high for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
4. To serve, cut fish into serving-size peices, cutting to but not through the skin. Carefully separate the fish from the skin. Serve with salsa.

The salsa is good, but we don't make it every time.

Salsa:
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
2 oranges, peeled, sectioned, and coarsely chopped
1 cup chopped pineapple, drained
2 tablespoons cilantro
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped.

We love this meal with rice and vegetables. It's yummy and disappears quickly.
