2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 (4-ounce) salmon fillets
1 (26-ounce) jar refrigerated fresh citrus sections in light syrup
2 teaspoons chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Cooking spray
3 cups packaged trimmed baby spinach


Combine soy sauce, 1 1/2 tablespoons honey, and brown sugar in a heavy-duty, zip-top plastic bag. Add fish; seal bag securely, and marinate in refrigerator 1 hour, turning bag occasionally.

Drain citrus sections, reserving 1/4 cup liquid. Combine citrus with mint; set aside.

Combine reserved 1/4 cup liquid, 1 teaspoon honey, and vegetable oil; set aside.

Remove fish from marinade; discard marinade. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place rack over medium-hot coals (350° to 400°). Place fish on rack; grill, covered, 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Arrange spinach evenly on 2 serving plates. Place fish on spinach leaves, and spoon citrus mixture around fish; drizzle evenly with reserved dressing.
