Barbara's Brazilian Salmon

This recipe comes from my friend Barbara, and it is our family's favorite.  Seeing as my husband doesn't like fish, but asks for this one - it really is that good!

4 salmon fillets (5-6 oz)
1/2 large orange, juice only (or orange juice)
1/2 large lemon, juice only (or 2-3 T. lemon juice)
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. chili powder
1 large garlic clove (minced)
2 T. melted butter

Marinate salmon in orange juice, lemon juice, salt and pepper for 20 minutes at room temperature (or longer).

Preheat oven to 425*
Mix brown sugar, chili powder and garlic together in a small bowl; rub well into marinated salmon.  Grease a foil lined baking sheet with a bit of the melted butter and place rubbed salmon on top.  Then drizzle with remaining butter and any remaining marinade. 

Cover with foil and bake for 25 +/- minutes - until salmon flakes with a fork.
