 Ingredients List

  • -----------------------------------SALSA-----------------------------------
  • 4 Navel oranges
  • 1 sm Red onion, finely
  • -chopped
  • 1/4 c Fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 c Chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tb Minced chipotle peppers
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • Salt & freshly ground
  • -black pepper to taste


1 tb Coriander seeds, crushed
1 tb Cumin seeds
1/2 tb Black peppercorns
1 ts Kosher salt
1 lb Salmon fillet, skin

With a sharp knife, remove skin and white pith from oranges and discard.
Working over a medium-sized bowl to catch the juice, cut the orange
segments from their surrounding membrane, letting the segments fall into
the bowl. Add onions, lime juice, cilantro, chipotle peppers and garlic.
Stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. (Salsa can be made ahead and
stored, covered, in the refrigerator for up to 8 hours.)


Heat a small skillet over medium heat. Add coriander and cumin; toast,
stirring constantly, until aromatic, 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool and transfer
to a spice mill or mortar and pestle. Add peppercorns to the mill and
coarsely grind all the spices. Stir in salt. Prepare grill. Coat salmon
with the spice mixture. Grill on a lightly oiled rack until the fish is
opaque in the center, about 5 minutes per side. Serve with salsa.
