Of course, this marinade was inspired by the wonderful drink....the Margarita!! But, it compliments the salmon well!! Adpated from Cooking Club of America.

Very nice recipe - the tequila added just a touch of sweetness that was a perfect compliment to the red pepper and paprika. I baked in the oven and when I make this again will make sure weather will allow us to grill. Made for the August Seafood Photo Challenge. Thanks for SkinnyMinnie for a very enjoyable dinner.
