Grilled Salmon with Chipotle Lime Marinade

 Grilled Salmon with Chipotle Lime Marinade
4 Servings

This marinade is good for chicken, beef, lamb, pork and vegetables

4 – 6 ounce salmon fillets
For the marinade
½ cup olive oil
2 limes juiced
¼ cup tamari
1 tomato diced
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
¼ cup sliced scallions
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon cumin, ground

Preheat grill on medium
Combine all marinade ingredients in a food processor and puree until smooth and creamy.
Place filets in a shallow baking dish and pour the marinade over filets.  
Let filets marinate on the counter for 1 hour.
Brush grill grates with canola oil then place filets on the hot grill.
Grill from about 4- 6 minutes per side (depending on the thickness).  And remember, it's better to undercook than overcook.

Note: Once you place salmon on the hot grill, leave it alone, let it cook long enough for the grill to release it naturally 3 – 4 minutes.
If using a charcoal grill wait until ambers are ash colored before placing on the fillets.
