Recipe Description

Simple grilled salmon recipe for the BBQ gets jazzed up with spicy pear.

A simple grilled salmon steak gets a little more dressy with this intense compote—sweet and savoury at the same time.  There are quite a few ingredients in the compote but when they come together, it’s like a party. Not a kegger, but nothing snooty either. An elegant, hearty meal with complex flavours that’s sure to please everyone at the table.

Salmon safe wine pairings

For a lovely white, check out L’Ecole No. 41’s Semillon.”Medium-bodied and elegant with enough acidity for this dish, since there is some Sauvignon Blanc in it,” says wine Sommelier Brian.

As for red, try Panther Creek‘s Shea Vineyard Pinot noir, or their Freedom Hill Vineyard Pinot noir. “Again, elegant fruit but with a little grit, some smokey spices that should compliment this dish.”
