salmon2

Serves 4

  • 1 pound salmon
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ¼ cup shallots, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1¼ cups fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 15 leaves of basil, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 3 tablespoon water
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.  Place salmon on nonstick baking sheet and place in oven; check at 7 minutes.  Salmon is done when just firm to the touch.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small pan, heat oil on medium heat.  Add shallots and garlic and sauté until soft; about 3-5 minutes.
  3. Add blueberries, vinegar, basil and honey.  Warm through, stirring occasionally, then add water.  Simmer for a few more minutes until berries are soft and basil aromatic.
  4. Transfer to blender or food processor and blend.  Spoon over salmon fillets.
