  1. In a small bowl, combine the wine, soy sauce and brown sugar. Set aside 2 tablespoons mixture for basting. Stir garlic into remaining mixture. Place in a large resealable plastic bag; add the salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the salsa ingredients. Cover and chill until serving.
  3. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Place salmon skin side down on grill rack.
  4. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 10-12 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting occasionally with reserved wine mixture. Serve with salsa. Yield: 6 servings.

"It was really really good. My husband loved it too, and it took 10-15 minutes to prepare. Instead of grilling the fish, I actually baked it and it turned out great. You don't have to cook a whole day to make an awesome fish dish :)"

"Didn't eat the salmon so I can only rate the salsa-which was absolutely delightful. I left out the grapes, only because I didn't have any, and added diced onion. We ate it as a side dish with hamburgers, but it was gone quickly as I caught family members dipping into the salsa throughout the day for a snack."

"I used Snapper instead of Salmon. I also omitted the grapes but added chopped mango's and peaches to make this a sweeter salsa for the fish. Mix with wild rice for an excellant side dish also."
