RECIPE: Grilled Salmon in Chipotle Sauce

I got this recipe from Ree Drummond’s (Pioneer Woman)’s grilling contest winners:

8 oz salmon filet (2-4 oz portions)
Juice of 2 oranges & zest of 1 orage
1 chipotle in adobo (canned) and 2 tsp chipotle adobo sauce
2 tbsp pure honey
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, chopped
1. For the marinade, combine fresh orange juice, orange zest, chipotle and adobo sauce, honey and garlic in a small food processor or blender; process until smooth.

2. Add salt, pepper and marinade (reserving 1-2 tablespoons of marinade to brush on salmon while grilling) into a plastic zip top bag with salmon filets. Marinate salmon in refrigerator for about 2 hours (or your preference of time).
3. This is the part with the grill but I don’t have a grill so I pre-set my oven to 350 degrees.
4. Remove salmon from marinade and put in the oven for about 20 minutes (you will smell it when it is done).  As the salmon cooks, brush with reserved marinade.

Yummy dinner!
