Nutritional Facts

1 fillet (calculated without salsa and lime wedges) equals 330 calories, 19 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 100 mg cholesterol, 182 mg sodium, 5 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 34 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place the first five ingredients in a food processor; cover and process until finely chopped. Add the lime juice, sugar, tomato sauce and lime peel; cover and process until blended.
  2. Transfer to a large resealable plastic bag. Add the salmon; seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Place salmon skin side down on grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-14 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with salsa and lime slices if desired. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
