Grilled Salmon with Nectarine Basil Relish

Incredible grilled salmon. So easy and so much flavor. Served with grilled asparagus and heirloom black rice. You’ll need my barbecue rub recipe too.

Nectarine Relish:

  • 3 nectarines, pitted and diced
  • 2 green onions, chopped whites and greens
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno (more if you like spicy)
  • 2 tablespoons chiffonade fresh basil
  • salt & pepper

Mix the relish ingredients in medium size bowl. Season relish to taste with salt and pepper.


  • 4 salmon fillets, 5 to 6 ounces in size, with skin on

Heat barbecue to medium-high heat. Brush salmon with oil. Sprinkle with barbecue rub; press to adhere. Grill salmon until slightly charred and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to plates. Garnish with nectarine relish.
