Brush the paste over salmon on both sides. Use full amount for spiciest
effect, less for milder flavor. Sprinkle over salmon on both sides. Season
with salt to taste. Brush with olive oil and let rest at room temperature
at least 15 minutes before grilling. Add some mesquite chips of a small
piece of wood to the coals; when it starts smoking, place the salmon on the
