Grilling Salmon with Fantastic Chipotle Rub - Mojo de Ajo
This chipotle rub Mojo de Ajo and Spanish rub has a wonderful toasted garlic sauce and smoky chipotles, this is an easy dish and your guests will love it if they like bold and spicy flavors.
Four six ounce portions of Salmon filet.
Note :This recipe can work with almost any good grilling fish, Halibut, Ono, Mahi Mahi Swordfish, Opah, or Albacore. The most important thing is the fish is really fresh, as always.
8 ounces Langostinos, Shrimp or Rock Shrimp cooked
On a plate or in a pan place salmon filet, sprinkle with Spanish rub and coat with two tablespoons olive oil.
Grill the fish until done. I really like to cook my fish medium or in some cases medium rate. But the fish must be pristinely fresh.
Place the langostinos, shrimp or cooked rock shrimp on top of the fish on the plate. Top with the chipotle mojo de ajo sauce.
