Salmon with Brazilian Rub
Recipe By : Ivete Cequiera

4 salmon fillets
1/2 c large lemon -- juice
1/2 c large orange -- juice
salt and pepper
1 whole orange -- zest first
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 large garlic clove -- minced
2 tablespoons butter -- melted

In a shallow dish large enough to hold the salmon, combine the juices, salt and pepper. Add the salmon, turning to coat with the marinade. Let marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning the fillets once.

Preheat the oven to 425F. Line a shallow baking pan with aluminum foil and grease with a little of the melted butter.

In a small dish, combine the orange zest, brown sugar, chili powder and minced garlic. Rub the marinated salmon with the brown sugar mixture. Place in the pan and frizzle with the remaining melted butter. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes.
