The juice of 1.5 limes


  1. Rinse salmon under water and pat dry with a paper towel.
  2. Cut salmon into 4-6 oz portions, and place in a gallon ziplock bag.
  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together spices, olive oil, and lime juice.
  4. Pour marinade over salmon, seal bag, and make sure the salmon is evenly coated in the marinade.
  5. Marinate salmon for 2-4 hours before grilling.
  6. Preheat grill to 400.
  7. Place salmon on a fish plate, skin side down first, and grill for 4 minutes a side, flipping once.
