Barbecued Salmon With Field Greens
Barbecue sauce:

2 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
6 salmon fillets, 5 oz each
1 olive oil for the salmon


1 lb organic field greens
1 1/2 cup v8 or other vegetable juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1 1/2 tablespoon barbecue rub (reserved from above)
4 tablespoon olive oil

For the rub:

Combine the chili, garlic and onion powders, the sugar, salt, allspice, cumin, white pepper and paprika in a food processor until thoroughly mixed. Sprinkle all but 1 1/2 tablespoons of the rub on all sides of the salmon. Let fillets marinate for 6 hours.

To cook the salmon:

Prepare a very hot grill. If you are using wood chips on the hot coals, first soak these in water so they will smoke more. Add soaked chips 5 minutes before starting the salmon. Rub the fillets with a thin film of olive oil. Grill them approximately 8-10 minutes, depending on thickness.

field greens and vinaigrette:

Clean and refresh the greens in cold water. Spin dry. Mix the vegetable juice, vinegar and tomato together with the reserved barbecue rub and olive oil. Toss with the greens.

To serve:

Divide greens among plates. Top each plate with a salmon fillet. Spoon the remaining vinaigrette in the bowl over the salmon. Serve hot.
