1. Combine first 8 ingredients in a large heavy duty, zip-top plastic bag; add salmon. Seal bag, and marinate salmon in refrigerator 2 hours, turning bag occasionally.

2. Remove salmon from marinade, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat, and set aside.

3. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals (350 to 400 degrees F). Place salmon on rack; grill, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, basting frequently with reserved marinade.
