Grilled Brazilian Rub Salmon is a recipe I’ve had for years. I don’t remember where I got it from, but it’s one of those recipes that can be made quickly, yet is impressive.

To be honest, I’m not sure there’s anything Brazilian about this recipe, but that’s the name of the recipe that was given to me.

First, the salmon is marinated briefly in fresh orange and lemon juice and seasoned with salt and pepper. I’ve used lime juice and it’s worked well too.

Next, the Brazilian rub is mixed together and spread on top of the salmon. The rub consists of fresh garlic, Spanish smoked paprika, paprika, and chili powder. The original recipe didn’t call for Spanish smoked paprika, but I added it for extra smoky flavor.

Cedar planks are a great way to add extra smokiness to this salmon recipe. It makes a dramatic presentation too. Cedar planks need to be soaked for at least 30 minutes, if not longer. Otherwise, they might catch on fire (this has happened to me before). Drizzle some oil on the cedar plank, place the salmon on top and drizzle a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on top. If you don’t have a cedar plank, I suggest grilling the salmon on top of an oiled piece of foil. This will keep the fish from sticking to the grill.

My boys don’t like cooked fish (they like sushi), but they love salmon prepared this way. The first time I made it this summer, I made enough just for my husband and me. The boys wanted to taste it and before I knew it, they had devoured our dinner. I’ve been making this Brazilian Rub Salmon at least once a week ever since.
