For the Salmon:
For the Pear and Cucumber Salad:
Garnish:

Directions

Make the Vinaigrette: In a blender or food processor, combine the chipotle peppers, 2 tablespoons of the adobo sauce it is packed in, the garlic, shallots, chopped cilantro, and vinegar and puree.

Make the Salmon: Fold each salmon strip in half and skewer 2 together in an interlocking "yin and yang" form. Season with salt and pepper. Cook the salmon for 10 to 12 minutes in a smoke-box or on a barbecue grill.

Make the Pear and Cucumber Salad: In a medium size bowl toss together the cucumber, pear, jicama, and lemon juice.

To serve: Lightly coat the bottom of six serving plates with 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons of the chipotle vinaigrette. Place the pear and cucumber salad on the top half. Place the beets on at the last minute. Remove skewers from salmon and lay partially on the salad. Garnish with cilantro sprigs.
