Ingredients

For the marinade

  • 3/4 Cups blue agave syrup
  • 1/3 Cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 Cup Tabasco brand Chipotle Pepper Sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Tabasco brand Original Red Sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Pounds salmon fillets, cut into four 8-ounce pieces

For the nectarines

  • 2 ripe nectarines, pitted and cut into large chunks
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped mint or basil
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 Teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Tabasco Chipotle Pepper Sauce

For the corn grits

  • 4 ears corn, husked and halved
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Tabasco brand Original Red Sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

For the marinade

In a large bowl, combine the agave syrup, soy sauce, Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, fish sauce, Tabasco Original Red Sauce, garlic, and olive oil. Add the salmon fillets and cover and refrigerate for 3 hours, turning occasionally. After marinating, grease the grill and preheat it to medium-high. Place the salmon, skin-side up on grill, and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the fish and cook about 4 minutes longer, or until the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.

For the nectarines

In a medium bowl, combine the nectarines, mint, olive oil, salt, and Tabasco Chipotle Sauce. Mix well, cover, and then refrigerate. 

For the corn grits

Grate the kernels from the corn into a bowl and mix with the butter in a 2-quart saucepan. Over high heat, heat the corn until boiling, frequently stirring until the mixture thickens. Stir in Tabasco Original Red Sauce, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Serve with the salmon and nectarine salad.

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
