Citrus Grilled Salmon

1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 Tbsp minced ginger
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp mustard seed
salt and pepper to taste
4- 6 oz salmon fillets
3 Tbsp diced green onions 

Mix together orange juice, soy sauce, garlic, ginger, mustard and mustard seed in a glass baking dish.

Add the salmon and cover. Refrigerate for 1-4 hours, turning salmon once or twice if not fully covered in the marinade.

Heat grill to medium high heat, and spray the grate with cooking spray (we use Pam spray for Grilling). Cook salmon about 5 minutes per side. 

If you want some sauce to pour over your salmon, you can use the marinade that you used before cooking, but you need to bring it to a boil in a saucepan (you must do this if you want to reuse the sauce, because it has had raw fish in it). Garnish with green onions and serve.
