Salmon with Spiced Marsala Plum Sauce

Grilled salmon really shines when served with a sauce of dried plums, aromatic spices and Marsala. If you don't have a grill, the sauce is also great with broiled salmon.

Prep Time   10 minutes Cook Time   30 minutes Serves  8

Ingredients

1 pound (about 2 1/2 cups) pitted dried plums
2 cups water
1/2 cup Marsala or dry red wine
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
No-stick cooking spray
8 salmon steaks (about 6 ounces each)


Directions

In small saucepan, bring dried plums and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer dried plums to food processor, reserving cooking liquid. Add 1 cup of the cooking liquid (adding additional water, if necessary), wine, lemon juice, oil, lemon peel, sugar, pepper, salt, cinnamon, allspice and cloves to food processor; process until smooth. Return to saucepan; simmer over medium-low heat 10 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, grill salmon over medium-hot coals (or broil on rack of broiler pan 3 to 4 inches from heat) 7 to 11 minutes or until fish is cooked to desired doneness, turning once. Serve with sauce.

Tip: Salmon fillets with skin may be substituted for salmon steaks. Place salmon, skin sides down, on rack of broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat 6 to 8 minutes or until fish is cooked to desired doneness, without turning. Proceed as above.
