Several weeks ago I was watching my weekly dose of America's Test Kitchen. I learn a lot by watching the show which airs on public television. I make sure to record the new episodes on DVR so I don't miss them.
4 Salmon fillets, skinned (2 inches wide)
½ cup jalapeno jelly
2 scallions – rough cut
½ cup cilantro, stems okay
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp lime zest
2 Tbs butter
Put in a small saucepan over medium heat, bubbling away for 2-3 minutes. Add 2 the butter and mix while it all melts into the sauce. The sauce is now ready.
Season the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. Then, brush the pretty side of the salmon (this is called the presentation side) with the glaze.
Put it face-down (presentation side) onto the foil. You are putting it face-down because during cooking, you will turn the fish over one time only, therefore ending-up with the pretty side face-up so you can re-glaze at the end.
Carefully flip the salmon fillets over with tongs. Look! Grill marks!
With a spoon, put a thick layer of the glaze on top and let the salmon finish cooking.
This is how mine looked as I was about to remove it from the grill:
Plate the salmon. Add a little more glaze on top and garnish it with lemon and cilantro.
I served my salmon on a bed of Coconut Rice With Ginger and Chiles. The two recipes really went well together.
