  • 1 2 pound fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillet, about 1 inch thick

  • cup green jalapeño pepper jelly

  • cup rice vinegar

  • cup soy sauce

  • 3 green onions, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil

  • 3 garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ¼ cup snipped fresh cilantro

  • ¼ cup sliced fresh jalapeno chile peppers and/or sliced green onions


  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. In saucepan melt jelly over low heat; remove. Stir in next 7 ingredients. Place fish in shallow dish; pour mixture over fish. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning fish occasionally.

  2. Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. For charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat in center of grill. Place fish on greased piece of heavy-duty foil in center of grill. Cover; grill 15 to 18 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. (For gas grill, adjust for indirect cooking. Grill over medium heat as above.)

  3. Bring reserved marinade to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Drizzle over fish; sprinkle cilantro, peppers, and onions. Serves 8.
