  1. Place salmon fillets in a medium, nonporous glass dish. In a separate medium bowl, combine the groundnut oil, soy sauce, vinegar, spring onions, dark brown soft sugar, garlic, ginger, red chillies, sesame oil and salt. Whisk together well, and pour over the fish. Cover and marinate the fish in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours.
  2. Prepare an outdoor barbecue with coals about 12cm from the grate, and lightly oil the cooking grate.
  3. Barbecue the fillets 12cm from coals for 10 minutes per 2.5cm of thickness, measured at the thickest part, or until fish just flakes with a fork. Turn over halfway through cooking.
