Aggie adapted it from a chicken recipe in Foods and Flavors of San Antonio by Gloria Chadwick, and we made a few tweaks of our own.
You can broil or grill the salmon, which we suggest serving with rice, black or pinto beans, and sautéed red pepper and onion, garnished with fresh cilantro.

2 teaspoons sauce from canned chipotle chilies
1/4 teaspoon ground organic cumin

4 (6 oz) wild Alaskan salmon fillet portions
Lime slices, for garnish
- Sauté chopped garlic in a lightly oiled medium-low pan for a 5 minutes, being careful not to burn it.
- In a medium size bowl, combine the garlic, olive oil, allspice, cinnamon, lime juice, chipotle sauce, cumin, salt, and black pepper.
- Coat the salmon with the marinade, then cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
