  2. Rinse salmon filets and remove any bones you find. Pat dry and slice cross ways into about 2 inch pieces.
  3. Coat salmon filets all over with marinade and set in an oven-safe flat glass bowl for another 30 minutes.
  4. Cook in a 425 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or your desired level of doneness. Alternately, grill on med/high indirect fire with a chunk of cherry or Adler wood-or another flavor wood you like. Pecan may be a nice choice.
