I came up with this recipe for my Husband's boss who can not get enough heat or garlic in his food. He still requests this dish often, according to this wife. Warning: I would not recommend this recipe for a first date or a romantic evening. You will love it if you love garlic and very spicy food. It's also very good on French bread for a spicy garlic bread alternative.

  • Preheat a grill for medium-high heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate.

  • Grill the salmon fillets until they are able to be flaked with a fork, about 7 minutes per side. Baste occasionally with the remaining marinade.

Yum yum yum! My husband and I made this three days ago and adored it. So much so that I am making it again tonight! I cut the jalapenos in half when I made it but I am going full strength this time. We thought it could handle the extra heat. I used the salmon "filet mignon" cut that is very easy to grill. Served it with grilled veggies and the Japanese rice from this site. Used the left over sauce on the rice! To die for. Tonight I am going to put the salmon on some romaine lettuce with a loaf of french bread. Perfect for a summer night! Read More

I would give this 10 stars if I could! It blew us away. My mother-in-law doesn't like spicy and doesn't like salmon and even she loved it! I didn't have time to roast the garlic so I used only three cloves of raw garlic and probably less than a cup of mayo. This spread would go great on lots of things! Delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

We replaced two of the jalapenos with Fresno Red peppers almost doubled the roasted garlic and added a healthy dose of pepper and salt. We used Coho salmon. I didn't flip it on the grill which allowed the sauce to crisp up nicely on one side which made it look great. Sauce is a much better word than marinade for this recipe. Push it with the spatula and when the fish separates from the skin it's done. You can test it that way without breaking the crust and damaging presentation. The mayo makes the peppers chill out a bit more than we expected. My wife and I like a kick to our food so next time I'll switch all the peppers for Habaneros and add a lemon. We made the entire sauce but only two fillets. I'm gonna use it to bread and bake chicken. Read More

Excellent flavor we absolutely loved it. I did reduce the amount of garlic by a bit and it was perfect-- not too spicy and you can still taste the salmon flavor. Thanks for the recipe it'll go in our keeper file! Read More

great...not sure i kept the exact recipe ratios but added a little lime and cilantro as well- the lime helps keep the spiciness down a little. I pan roasted the garlic and jalepenos- very unique and just what we were looking for! Read More
