I was struggling to think of something to make for the Latin American throw down going on. Finally found something I could work with. Made chili lime glazed salmon topped with a mango grapefruit salsa and a side of rice. First made the salsa. Diced red onion, red pepper, mango, grapefruit mixed that with fresh lime juice, salt, pepper, lime zest and some oil.

Next made the glaze for the salmon.

I cooked the salmon on the kettle with grill grates. Coated with the glaze.

While that was cooking I made the rice. Took whole grain white and cooked it in chicken broth. Then took some onions and sautéed them in cocunut oil mixed black beans in and used some thyme, salt,pepper, and turmeric for flavoring.
Put it all together when everything was done.

Thanks, the flavor of the salmon by itself was great but then topping it with the salsa just took it to entirely different level. Only thing I would change is maybe put alittle jalapeño in the salsa to give a bit back end heat. Cooked for my mom though and she doesn't do well with heat.

You got it! Posting pics is very very easy.. Well at least from a phone. I wish I had a photography degree! All my photos are from my iPhone and I bet I take at least 20-30 per cook and pic the best from there. Could only imagine if I knew what I was actually doing.
