Chipotle peppers are smoked jalapenos that you can buy dried, pickled or canned in adobo sauce. I use the canned chipotles and brush the salmon with the adobo sauce. These are available in Latin and South American food stores and specialty shops. If fresh herbs are not available, use 1 teaspoon of dried.
