1 Tbsp. finely ground coffee
1 Tbsp. ground coriander
1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
1 Tbsp. granulated garlic
2 Tbsp. kosher salt
1-1/2 lb. Alaska Sockeye Salmon
heavy-duty aluminum foil
non-stick cooking spray
What to do:
1. Heat grill to 375°F. Mix rub ingredients together well.
2. Remove Alaska Sockeye salmon from refrigerator. Cut 2 pieces of wide, heavy-duty aluminum foil about 6-in. longer than the salmon side. Stack the foil pieces (shiny side down) on a baking sheet and spray generously with cooking spray. Place the salmon, skin side down, in the middle of the foil. Fold the foil sides and ends up (1 to 2-in.) to make a shallow pan around the salmon, leaving at least a 1-in. margin around the fish.
3. Rub/pat about 1 tsp. rub on each salmon portion or 1 to 2 Tbsp. onto salmon side. Let the rub rest on the salmon about 10 min. before cooking.
4. Carefully transfer the foil pan to the center of the preheated grill. Do not cover the salmon with foil or close the foil over the salmon. Close grill cover and cook for 10 to 13 min., cooking just until fish is lightly translucent in the center - it will finish cooking from retained heat. Remove from the grill and let rest a few minutes before serving.

Cook's Tips:
* Check salmon for doneness at 10 min.
* To add a bright flavor, serve with lemon and orange wedges for squeezing over the top after cooking.
* Leftover rub can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

Variation: Roast in an oven preheated to 375°F, cooking 12 to 15 min., until lightly translucent in the center. Be sure to let the salmon rest a few minutes before serving.
