DIRECTIONS

  • Grate peel from limes & place in a bowl.
  • Squeeze out 1/2 cup juice from limes.
  • Add to bowl along with tequila & oil.
  • Finely chop peppers and stir into lime mixture along with sugar, chili powder & salt.
  • Place salmon into large resealable plastic bag.
  • To support the bag, place in a large bowl.
  • Pour marinade over fish and seal bag.
  • Let marinade for at least an hour--but preferably 4 hours.
  • Lightly oil grill and turn BBQ to medium.
  • Remove salmon from marinade & place directly on hot grill.
  • BBQ, with lid closed, for about 7- 8 minutes per side or until a knife point inserted into the center of the salmon feels warm.
  • While salmon is grilling, pour remaining marinade into a saucepan.
  • Boil vigorously, uncovered, stirring often, until sauce is reduced by half--about 3 minutes.
  • If you want a thicker sauce, add butter & whisk constantly for about another minute.
