Apricot-Chile Glazed Salmon

2 Tbsp. New Mexico red chili powder

½ tsp. salt

1 ¼ – 1 ½ lbs. center-cut wild salmon, skinned

3 Tbsp. apricot jam


Preheat grill to medium-high.  (No grill?  See oven variation, below.)

Combine chili powder and salt in a small bowl.  Rub onto both sides of salmon.

Place jam in a small saucepan; heat over medium heat, stirring, until melted.

Oil the grill rack.  Grill the salmon 4 minutes, and then turn it over.  Using a pastry brush, coat the top of salmon with the jam.  Close the grill; cook until the salmon easily flakes with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes more.  To serve, cut into 4 portions.

Oven Variation:  Prepare through Step 3.  Bake in a shallow baking pan at 350 F., about 15 minutes.
