A healthy, tangy way to prepare salmon. My guests are always blown away by how unusual this is!
1 tsp finely grated lime rind
¼ cup lime juice (about 1 large lime)
2 tsp vegetable oil
1 tsp minced fresh ginger
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely minced
2 (6 oz) salmon steaks
Whisk together lime rind, lime juice, oil, ginger and jalapeno. Set aside a teaspoon of the mixture. Place salmon steaks in a dish just large enough to hold them. Pour remaining lime juice mixture over salmon and turn to coat.
Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes, turnig once (Do not marinate longer than 30 minutes or the salmon will go mushy).
Preheat bbq or grill pan to medium high and grease grill. Grill salmon turning once, until cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Remove to platter and spoon reserved lime juice mixture over salmon. Serve immediately.
You can also broil the salmon about 4 inches from heat, turning once, until salmon is cooked through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
