Chef's Tip

Serve Grilled Sweet Mesquite Molasses BBQ-Dried Cherry Salmon over your favorite rice along with grilled asparagus.


1. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. In small bowl, add cherries and enough hot water to cover; soak 10 minutes. Drain cherries; transfer to cutting board and coarsely chop.

2. In small saucepot, heat sauce to a simmer over medium heat; stir in cherries and cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reserve 1/2 cup sauce mixture. Makes about 3/4 cup.

3. Sprinkle salmon with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side up, on hot grill rack; cover and cook 3 minutes. Turn salmon, brush with remaining 1/4 cup sauce mixture; cover and cook 3 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°.
