Beautiful fresh salmon grilled with a zesty citrus glaze. Served with an avocado salad.

Ingredients

1-2 pounds fresh salmon fillet (I like about 5 ounces per person)
1 Cup orange juice (glaze)
1 lime, juice only (glaze)
1 lemon, juice only (glaze)
2 Tablespoons rice wine vinegar (glaze)
1/4 Cup brown sugar (glaze)
2 scallions, chopped (glaze)
2 inches fresh ginger (glaze)
2 cloves garlic (glaze)
Quick avocado Salad:
2 avocados
1/4 red onion, minced
1 jalapeno, diced
Handful of cilantro, minced
1 lime, juice only
Pinch of salt

Directions

1) For the glaze, add ingredients to a small pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat.  Stir continuously until sugar is dissolved.

2) Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes until glaze is reduced to 1/3.  Strain sauce.  It should be a light syrupy consistency.

3) For salad, finely dice all ingredients except avocados and mix with lime juice.  Set aside.

4) Grill salmon, skin side up, over high heat, for about 3-4 minutes.  Flip.

5) Once flipped, start brushing on glaze.  Continue to brush on glaze until salmon is finished – about another 3 minutes.

6) Serve salmon with rice and avocado salad.
