Prepare marinade. Place all ingredients (except salmon) in a jar, shaking well. Pour half of the marinade into a sealable plastic bag and then place salmon inside.
Reserve the remaining marinade in the jar. Let salmon sit at room temp for about 20 minutes while marinating.Meanwhile, prepare salsa. Cut all ingredients, place all in a medium bowl, mix, and cover. Refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes so all the flavors come together.
Remove salmon from bag and discard marinade from the bag. Clean and oil grill (see tip #3 in post). Make sure grill is on medium-high before starting to grill.
Place fillet skin-side up (unless you like crispy skin – in that case, start grilling salmon skin side-down first), an inch apart each. When salmon is about 60% cooked and changes color in the middle, flip it using two large flat spatulas.
For 1-inch-thick fillet, it takes about 5-6 minutes. After flipping salmon, brush with remaining marinade and let cook for about 4 more minutes or until cooked through. Let rest for 3-5 minutes before serving. Serve with salsa on top.
