- In a large shallow dish, mix the marinade ingredients and coat the salmon with it. This can be done just before grilling, or up to one hour before. Refrigerate while marinating.
- Heat a charcoal or gas grill until medium hot. Lightly oil the grill with tongs holding paper towels dipped in oil. Grill salmon 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
- Slice cucumber lengthwise and scoop out the seeds. Thinly slice crosswise. You should have about 2 cups. Combine with plums and vinegar. Place a salmon filet on each of 4 plates and top with the cucumber salad. Garnish with pea shoots, if desired.
