Pepper Jelly and Soy Glazed Salmon

1-2lb fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillet, about 1 inch thick
2/3 cup green jalapeno pepper jelly
1/3 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 green onions, sliced
1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup sliced fresh jalapeno chile peppers and/or sliced green onions

1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry. In saucepan melt jelly over low heat; remove. Stir in next 7 ingredients. Place fish in shallow dish; pour mixture over fish. Cover; refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, turning fish occasionally.
2. Remove fish from marinade; reserve marinade. For charcoal grill, arrange medium hot coals around edge of grill. Test for medium heat in center of grill. Place fish on greased piece of heavy-duty foil in center of grill. Cover; gril 15 to 18 minutes or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. (For gas grill, adjust for indirect cooking. Grill over medium heat as above.)
3. Bring reserved marinade to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Drizzle over fish; sprinkle cilantro, peppers, and onions. Serves 8

  13. This looks divine. Salmon is my favorite food. Sometimes when we're traveling, I won't even go into a restaurant if they don't have salmon as it's almost always #1 on my list. I'm always looking for new ways to fix it and this will be my next new way. Thanks!
