  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Cooking spray
  1. Combine orange juice, lime juice and salmon in a zip-top bag; seal and marinate in refrigerator about 1 hour, turning occasionally.
  2. If you don't have a grill, preheat oven to 400°. Coat a 13 x 9 baking pan with light cooking spray.
  3. Remove fish from bag and discard marinade.
  4. Combine sugar, chili powder, lemon rind, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Once mixed thoroughly, rub over fish.
  5. Toss onto the grill flipping after a couple minutes to make sure both sides are thoroughly cooked (fish is ready when it flakes easily when tested with fork).  Bake for 12 minutes or again, until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
