Salmon on the Barbie

Barbecue Salmon


Serves: 4


  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray


  • Combine orange juice, lime juice and salmon in a zip-top bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  • Remove fish from bag and discard marinade.
  • Combine sugar, chili powder, lemon rind, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Once mixed thoroughly, rub over fish.
  • Toss onto the grill flipping after a couple minutes to make sure both sides are thoroughly cooked (fish is ready when it flakes easily when tested with fork).
  • <If you don’t have a grill, preheat oven to 400°.  Spray a 13 x 9 baking pan with grapeseed oil.  Bake for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.>

Serve over wild rice, couscous or grilled veggies!
