  1. In a bowl, mix the brown sugar in the hot water until dissolved. Pour into a large resealable plastic bag, and mix in wine, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic and pepper. Place salmon in the bag, seal, and marinate 8 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. Preheat a barbecue for high heat.
  3. Lightly oil the cooking grate. Reserving marinade, place salmon on the BBQ, and cook 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until easily flaked with a fork.
  4. Transfer reserved marinade to a pot. Dissolve the cornflour in cold water. Bring the marinade to the boil, and stir in cornflour mixture to thicken. Serve over the salmon or on the side as a dipping sauce.
