    Rita~'s Note:

    My Favorite fish Salmon is one of the richest, strongest flavored fish available, it combines well with piquant sauces. This one is made with tomatoes and chipotle chiles. You can find these chipotles canned in dark red adobo sauce.

    sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To prepare the sauce: In a medium saucepan, warm the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and oregano, and cook until the garlic is light brown, about 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Add the tomatoes (including the juice) and the chile. Season with the sugar, salt, and pepper. Bring the sauce to a boil, then lower heat to a simmer. Cook for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring occasionally and crushing the tomatoes with the back of a large spoon as they soften. Carefully pour the sauce into a food processor. Puree and return to the pan. Keep warm over low heat.
    2. 2
      Generously brush or spray the salmon fillets with olive oil; season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill the fillets, flesh side down, over Direct Medium heat until you can lift them off the grate with tongs without sticking, 7 to 8 minutes. Turn the fillets and finish cooking them, skin side down, for 2 to 3 minutes. Slip a spatula between the skin and flesh, and transfer the fillets to serving plates. Serve warm with the sauce.

      This sauce is outrageous. We loved it and can see using it on so many different grilled dishes. It would be wonderful on grilled or smoked chicken and can't wait to try it on them. Will become a regular here with us, we love spicy.

      The sauce is spectacular. Because we were snowed in, I had to substitute tomato sauce instead of canned tomatoes and I baked the salmon at 425degrees for about 15 minutes instead of grilling. My husband and I were WOWED! I love how the chipotle sauce had a great kick but didn't overpower the roasted salmon. He even said it was the best salmon I had ever made. Thanks for a warm meal on such a cold night and thanks a million for posting!

      The sauce in this recipe is incredibility delicious. The seasonings and ingredients are just right. My DH thought it was super! I have left over sauce today and plan to use it with a black bean and chicken recipe. I am sure it will be delicious! This sauce could be used on almost any type of meat.
