Simple Salmon

Ingredients

6 skin-on salmon fillets, 1" thk (abt 6 oz ea)
3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon rice vinegar

Preparation

1
To make the Marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients until smooth.
2
Place the salmon fillets in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in all but 1/3 cup of the marinade. Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 15 to 30 minutes.
3
Remove the fillets from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the fillets, skin-side down, over Indirect High heat until opaque throughout, 10 to 12 minutes. During the last 2 minutes of grilling time, brush the fillets with the 1/3 cup reserved marinade.
4
Slide a spatula between the skin and flesh and transfer the fillets to serving plates. Serve warm.

Wine Recommendation: A medium-bodied, fruity Pinot Noir from Oregon's Willamette Valley or California's Carneros area will highlight the contrast between the earthy sauce and the briny fish.
7
Beer Recommendation: A lively Pilsener from Eastern Europe or one of America's wonderful craft breweries will cut through the complex marinade and allow the delicacy of the salmon to shine.

Comments: In a rush? Relax. This flavor kick is a lifesaver on hectic weekdays - but don't be surprised if you find yourself serving it up to friends on the weekend, too.
