Grilled Pesto Salmon

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)
We prefer the flavor of refrigerated pesto found in the produce section of the supermarket to the shelf-stable, jarred pesto. But either will work in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons commercial pesto
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine
