    Pikake21's Note:

    I'm always looking for a new way to use guava paste, as I seem to always have a good lot of it around. This is a nice twist on the typical old salmon dish--in that it offers a slightly sweeter taste than I am used to. From Simply Delicioso.

    For the barbecue sauce

    For the salsa


    1. 1
      For the barbecue sauce:.
    2. 2
      Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute.
    3. 3
      Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion, cooking until it's soft and a little brown around the edges, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often.
    4. 4
      Stir in the guava paste, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, star anise, allspice, and curry powder.
    5. 5
      Simmer until the guava paste has melted, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6
      Turn off the heat and let the sauce cool slightly.
    7. 7
      Discard the star anise; transfer the mixture to your blender and puree.
    8. 8
      With the motor running add the lime juice and rum.
    9. 9
      Transfer to a small bowl and set aside, or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
    10. 10
      For the salsa:.
    11. 11
      Whisk the olive oil, garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper together in a large bowl.
    12. 12
      Add the mangoes, peppers, red onions, chile, and cilantro and toss to coat.
    13. 13
      Add the beans and gently toss everything together.
    14. 14
      Heat your broiler to high.
    15. 15
      Line a large baking dish or rimmed baking sheet with a double layer of aluminum foil and grease the foil with some olive oil or nonstick cooking spray.
    16. 16
      Place the salmon in the prepared baking dish and tuck about 2-inches of the tail end under the fish, so you have a somewhat uniform shape.
    17. 17
      Pour the barbecue sauce over the salmon and cook it under the broiler until the sauce caramelizes and chars around the edges and the salmon is firm and flakes easily, 8 to 12 minutes for rare (the salmon will still be pink in the middle) or 12 to 15 minutes for well done (the salmon will be cooked throughout).
    18. 18
      Spread the salsa on the serving platter and carefully lift the salmon out of the baking dish and arrange it on top of the salsa (use 2 large spatulas to transfer it).
    19. 19
      Squeeze a few lime wedges over the fish and serve with additional lime wedges on the side.

      Very good! Both salsa and salmon were delicious. The BBQ sauce is sweet and I was afraid it would be too sweet for my BF, but he really liked it. I will definitely make this again.
