    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Put the jelly, scallions, cilantro, garlic, and lime zest into a food processor. Pulse the processor until the mixture is finely pureed.
    2. 2
      Put in a small saucepan over medium heat, bubbling away for 2-3 minutes. Add to the butter and mix while it all melts into the sauce. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    3. 3
      Put the salmon face-down (presentation side) onto the foil. You are putting it face-down because during cooking, you will turn the fish over one time only, therefore ending-up with the pretty side face-up so you can re-glaze at the end.
    4. 4
      Now brush the less-attractive bottom side (which is now face-up) with the sauce.
    5. 5
      Put the aluminum foil trays with your salmon onto the grill. Cook for 6-8 minutes. Carefully flip the salmon fillets over with tongs.
    6. 6
      With a spoon, put a thick layer of the glaze on top and let the salmon finish cooking.
    7. 7
      Plate the salmon. Add a little more glaze on top and garnish it with lemon and cilantro.

      Amazing concentrated flavors that are sweet (from the jelly), flavorful (from green onion & cilantro), and spicy (from jalapenos). We loved the taste as well as the colors in the beautiful glaze. A delightful recipe from America's Test Kitchen. 9/09 update - I think I've made this recipe 5 times now, and it really rocks! I double the sauce recipe and keep half in the refrigerator for the next batch.
