    Grill-Smoked Salmon with Chipotle Mayonaise

  • 2 sides of a 6 to 9 pound salmon, skin on
  • 1/2 cup Chipotle paste, or to taste
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed -- (2 to 4)
  • 1 cup Mayonesa de Chipotle, recipe follows
  • Jicama Escabechada, recipe follows
  • CHIPOTLE PASTE:
  • 1 can (8 ounces) Chiles Chipotles en Abode
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced (about 2 -- (4 to 5) tablespoons)
  • 1 tablespoon dried Mexican oregano
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or olive oil
  • JICAMA ESCABECHADA:
  • 1 small carrot, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 small zucchini, scrubbed and finely diced
  • 1 medium Jicama, peeled and finely diced
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped, (about 1 cup)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Chipotle paste
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 6 black peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried Mexican oregano, crumbled
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • SALMON:
    Run your fingers over salmon to find any pin bones and pull them out with tweezers. Brush the paste over salmon on both sides. Use full amount for spiciest effect, less for milder flavor. Sprinkle over salmon on both sides. Season with salt to taste. Brush with olive oil and let rest at room temperature at least 15 minutes before grilling. Add some mesquite chips of a small piece of wood to the coals; when it starts smoking, place the salmon on the grill, skin side down. Cover with a baking tray or disposable roasting pan to trap smoke. Cook for approximately 6 to 7 minutes on each side. The outside should be nice and brown, the center just barely cooked (very slightly translucent). Serve at room temperature with Mayonesa de Chipotle and Jicama Escabechada.
    Yield: 8 to 10 servings
