Fresh Fruit BBQ Salmon

I had no idea that you could BBQ salmon, but you sure can.  And let me be the one to tell you that it's so extremely good.  It brings out the natural sweetness of the fish from the brown sugar and molasses that is in most BBQ sauces.  And the fresh fruit relish really rounds it all out and enhances each and every bite.  This dish is both sweet and savory.  Sweet, savory and simply delicious.

4 salmon filet's
1/2 cup + 1 T. of BBQ sauce (divided, I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
2 ripe nectarines (peeled, chopped)
1 cup of fresh blueberries (rinsed)
1/2 cup of toasted pecans

-Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Lightly salt and pepper the salmon and place onto the top rack of the grill, skin side down (will just separate from the salmon once done).  Grill for about 8 minutes or until it starts to flake apart.  Then thickly slather on 1/2 cup of the BBQ sauce. Grill for a few more minutes.  Meanwhile for the fresh fruit relish, stir together the nectarines, blueberries, toasted pecans and the remaining 1 T. of BBQ sauce. Serve the salmon alongside some Jasmine rice and garnish with a heaping spoonful of the fresh fruit relish. Serves 4. Enjoy!
