Grilled Citrus Salmon Fillets

No recipe image available.A refreshing triple citrus marinade flavors salmon fillets prior to grilling. Some of the marinade is set aside for serving with the grilled salmon.

Recipe Ingredients:

1/3 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons peeled, finely minced fresh ginger
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
6 (6-ounce center-cut) pieces salmon fillets with skin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a blender purée citrus juices, brown sugar, onion and ginger until smooth. Reserve 1/2 cup marinade. Transfer remaining marinade to a large zip-lock style plastic bag and add the cilantro and salmon fillets, seal bag, removing as much air as possible. Marinate salmon in refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  2. Prepare grill.
  3. Remove salmon from marinade and discard marinade. Pat salmon dry. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Grill, skin side down, on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 4 minutes. Put lid on grill and grill salmon until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more. (Salmon may be grilled in a hot well-seasoned ridged grill pan with a lid over medium heat.) Carefully transfer salmon with a metal spatula to a platter and remove skin.
  4. Pour reserved juice mixture over salmon and serve.
