Add all of the sauce ingredients to bowl. Mash to combine and crush the ingredients into a marinade. Let stand for 25 minutes.
Preheat a grill to medium, and the coals have a light grey ash color. Cook low and slow.
Put the salmon fillet on the grill, skin side down. Spread the jerk sauce over the fillet and grill for approximately 15 minutes, depending on the heat. Flip the fillet, remove the skin, then spread it with jerk sauce. Let it grill for an additional 15 minutes. Flip the salmon 1 more time to seal in the flavors. Remove the salmon from the grill to a serving platter and serve.
