    CountryLady's Note:

    This recipe comes from British Columbia cooking teacher Jane Baily. The steaks are moist with a real Mexican kick. Add green rice, a side salad, make the Margaritas and let the party begin!!!

      I think anyone who doesn't grill this dish this summer will really be missing out! The fish has a suprisingly gentle citrus flavor that goes well with the sauce, that has a little bit of a bite from the jalapeno (but not too hot!) Thanks so much for this great easy recipe!

      wow, what a great way to do salmon. DH and I were both really impressed by the taste. I served the salmon on plates of baby greens and used the sauce as the dressing - it was perfect. A must-try.

      What a wonderful meal! Our entire family really enjoyed the flavor of the fish and the "sauce" was so....good! I would prepare "Mexican or TexMex" style side dishes because I served the boring baked potato etc. and it didn't do the salmon any justice. We will be making this more and sharing the recipe! Thanks!
