Grilled Salmon with Nectarines

My family liked this recipe so much one evening that I made it for a potluck the very next day. Everyone raved about it there, too—even people who aren't particularly fond of fish. —Kerin Benjamin, Citrus Heights, California

    We enjoyed this recipe. I made 2 slight adjustments: I cooked the salmon in a greased and covered frying pan on the stove top. I also substituted 1/6 teaspoon dried basil for fresh. I served it as recommended, but poured the extra sauce over the salmon. I would suggest considering making this minor change when serving it. My husband suggested that next time I prepare extra sauce, heat it, thicken it a bit, and pour it over the salmon when serving as he loved the sauce! Thank you Kerin for sharing this recipe.
