Chile-Rubbed Salmon with Papaya and Scallions

Pure ground chiles work best in this recipe. Commercially prepared chile powder, which is a mixture of chiles and other seasonings, can be used as well.

Ingredients

  • 4 teaspoons ground chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 4 six-ounce salmon fillets, skin on
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/3 ripe red or yellow papaya, peeled, seeded, cut into fine julienne
  • 2 scallions, cleaned, trimmed, and cut into fine julienne

Directions

  1. Step 1

    In a small bowl, combine the chile powder, coriander, oregano, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle the salmon with salt and pepper. Rub the garlic onto the flesh side of the salmon; then rub the chile-powder mixture over the garlic. Set aside for 30 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Heat grill or grill pan to medium high. Drizzle salmon with oil; place on grill flesh-side down. Grill 3 minutes, being careful not to burn chile rub. Turn; grill until opaque and just cooked through, about 4 minutes.

  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine papaya and scallions. Place grilled fish on top of the Black Beans and Corn. Garnish with papaya mixture, and serve immediately with Vegetable-Salad Burritos.

    This was an easy and delicious recipe! As the previous reviewer posted it is not very spicy at all, but the rub, garlic, and papaya topping really make for a delicious meal. We grilled ours and it was juicy and flavorful. We did skip on the sides and instead had a simple Spanish rice which complimented it well.

    This is the first time I used this recipe and loved it! It has good flavor, but not spicy. I didn't have papaya, instead I used mango, roma tomatoes, avocado, scallions, 1/2 tsp of lime juice and salt
