Mix 1 tablespoon oil, tamari, and lime juice together in a wide, shallow dish. Add salmon and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate. Heat remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook until light golden, about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add tomatoes, olives, wine, capers, basil, crushed red pepper and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

Oil grill grates and preheat grill. Place salmon over a medium-low fire. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes on each side, or until cooked to desired doneness. Divide sauce among six plates and top each with a piece of salmon.
