TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Grill: 10 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • SALSA:
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup seedless red grapes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup fat-free Italian salad dressing
  • 1 tablespoon canned chopped green chilies
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Directions

  • 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.
