I developed this grilled salmon recipe when I got home from Cordova, Alaska bearing a few pounds of Copper River salmon. A simple salsa made with summer’s stone fruits is the perfect accompaniment.

Yield: Serves 4

Grilled Salmon with Stone Fruit Salsa


  1. 1 tablespoon honey
  2. 2 cups stone fruit (I like to use nectarines and plums), cut into a 1/4-inch dice
  3. 1/4 cup finely diced red onion
  4. 2 tablespoons basil, minced
  5. 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  6. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 serrano chile, minced
  8. Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  9. 1 pound wild Alaska salmon


Heat honey in a small saucepan until it becomes liquid.

Mix together stone fruit, onion, basil, vinegar, oil and chile with salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Place salmon flesh-side down over direct heat and grill for 3-5 minutes, until it comes away from the grates cleanly. Flip, baste with honey, and grill for an additional 3-5 minutes, basting once more in the process.

Serve salmon with stone fruit salsa.


Cook Time 6-10 minutes
