  • 1 Tablespoon chopped Green Onions
  • 1 Tablespoon minced Jalapeno Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Fresh Minced Garlic
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1Teaspoon Ground Cumin

Mix all ingredients well and then add

  • 1 pound Salmon, diced in 3/4 inch cubes

Marinate at least 4-5 hours.

Meanwhile to make the dressing- whisk together the following ingredients and set aside until ready to serve.

  • 3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Chile Powder
  • ¾ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper

OK - now, remove the salmon from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Skewer the salmon( 2-3 skewers) and grill over medium heat 3-4 minutes each side.

Take 4 cups Salad Greens and toss with the prepared dressing. Place greens on a serving platter. Place salmon skewers on top of the greens and slide off skewer, if desired. Garnish with fresh lime or lemon zest and cilantro twigs.
