Plank-Grilled Salmon with Grape Relish

Photo: John Autry; Styling: Cindy Barr

Serve this dish with pinot noir. Briny olives, sweet grapes, and rich salmon match well with the wine's balance of earthiness and acidity. Substitute picholine or other green olives, if necessary.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1/3 cup relish)
