Here's my go-to entree for a warm-weather cookout. The salmon has a rich, grilled taste that's enhanced by the savory blackberry sauce. It's a nice balance of sweet, smoky and spicy. —Stephanie Matthews, Tempe, AZ

Ingredients

  • 2 cedar grilling planks
  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons honey
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons chipotle hot pepper sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 6 salmon fillets (5 ounces each)

Directions

Soak grilling planks in water for at least 1 hour.
In a food processor, combine the blackberries, wine, brown sugar, honey, hot pepper sauce, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cover and process until blended. Strain and discard seeds. Stir in shallots and garlic into the sauce; set aside.
Place planks on grill over medium-high heat. Cover and heat until planks create a light to medium smoke and begin to crackle, about 3 minutes (this indicates planks are ready). Turn planks over.
Sprinkle salmon with remaining salt and pepper. Place on planks. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 12-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with sauce. Yield: 6 servings (3/4 cup sauce).

"After reading the article on Planked Fish, I made this salmon without the sauce. Delicious! It's a keeper. Can't wait for summer again!"
