Grilled Salmon with Mango Sauce

Tonight is warm and the air outside is stagnant. Usually there is a light breeze blowing this time of night, but tonight is very still here in Southern California. I needed a dinner that would be light and refreshing to offset the dry, hot air outside. Tonight's menu definitely filled that bill. I love salmon and I really enjoyed how the sweet and spicy mango sauce went so well with the dry rub that I used on the salmon. All the flavors combined to make one of my new favorites!
For the Rub:
2 salmon steaks
1 Tbsp cumin
1 Tbsp coriander
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 Tbsp paprika
salt/pepper to taste

Mix all the rub ingredients together and rub into the outside of both salmon steaks.

For the Mango Sauce: 

1 mangoes, pureed in food processor
1/8 cup lime or lemon juice
1/2 Jalapeno pepper, seeded
1-2 Tbsp chopped cilantro

In a blender or food processor, puree the mangoes and lemon or lime juice. Add the jalapeno and cilantro and pulse until mixed through.

Grill the salmon steaks for 5-6 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon steaks.
Top with Mango Chili Sauce.
