Grilled Salmon with Chapagne Salsa

I love fresh Fish.  Delicate, flavorful and light yet very satisfying.  There are many ways of preparing fish but my absolute favorite way to cook it is on a grill.
Salmon is a very abundant fish here in Canada and we tend to eat a lot of it.  Tender and flaky salmon fillet and a wonderfully light,  fresh tasting salsa are a superb combination in this easy a quick recipe.


Ingredients:

Salmon Fillets cut into 2 inch pieces

for Salsa:
1/2 cup fresh cherry tomatoes cut in quarters
1 roasted red pepper cleaned and finely chopped
1/2 cup sweet champagne (sparkling wine or proseco can be used)
1 clove garlic finely chopped
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

Pre heat and oil your grill to prevent fish from sticking.

Rub salmon with olive oil on both sides and set aside.
Mix all other ingredients in a bowl and refridgerate .
Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper and grill on both sides for 3 mins each.
Plate salmon and top with salsa, serve immediately.

 Enjoy with a fresh summer salad and a glass of white wine.
