READY IN: 55mins




  • Make the glaze by bringing the cherry juice to a simmer in a non-reactive saucepan and reduce to 1/2 cup.
  • Add the remaining ingredients; bring to a quick boil, reduce temperature and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick and stir in vanilla.
  • Cool to room temperature and then chill.
  • Preheat grill on highest setting; rub the salmon with oil; season with salt and black pepper.
  • Divide the glaze using half to baste the salmon while cooking and the other half to drizzle over the salmon when serving.
  • Before cooking the salmon, place the 1/3 cup cherry juice and dry tart cherries in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, turn off heat, cover and allow to stand to reconstitute while the fish cooks.
  • Place the salmon on the grate and turn down the flame to the medium setting; baste the salmon with the glaze and grill for approximately 6 minutes on each side or until it flakes easily.
  • Drizzle the salmon with the cherry glaze and top with reconstituted cherries.
