BBQ Salmon over Mixed Greens
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon onion powder
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
6 (6 ounce) filets salmon
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound mixed salad greens
1 1/2 cups tomato-vegetable juice cocktail
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 For the rub: In a small bowl, combine the chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sugar, salt, allspice, cumin, white pepper and paprika. Mix well and sprinkle all but 1 1/2 tablespoons of the rub on all sides of the salmon. Cover salmon and refrigerate for 6 hours. Reserve the 1 1/2 tablespoons of rub for the vinaigrette.
2 Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil grate.
3 Lightly apply a thin film of olive oil to the salmon fillets. Grill over high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, or to desired doneness.
4 For the mixed greens and vinaigrette: Clean and refresh the greens; dry thoroughly. In a small bowl, combine the tomato-vegetable juice cocktail, vinegar, tomatoes, olive oil and reserved rub. Mix well and toss with the greens.
5 To serve: Divide greens among plates.
Top each plate with a salmon fillet and spoon any remaining vinaigrette over the salmon.
