Blueberry Glazed Salmon

By Nadeen Risi, MS, RDN, LDN  

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Makes: 4 servings

 

Ingredients:

½ cup fresh blueberries – can used frozen, but will increase cook time slightly

5 to 6 sprigs fresh thyme

1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

2 teaspoon lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon

½ teaspoon salt, divided

4-4oz salmon filets with skin

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

 

Preparation:

1. In a small pot, add blueberries, thyme, sugar, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Place over medium heat.

2. Boil for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally – sauce will reduce and thicken.

3. While waiting for sauce to boil and thicken, place oven rack about 6 inches from the broiler. Preheat oven broiler to high (or 525 degrees Fahrenheit if oven requires a broiler temperature).

4. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

5. Pat salmon filets dry with paper towels. Sprinkle remaining salt and pepper on all 4 filets.

6. Place filets skin side down on baking sheet.

7. Brush a thin layer of blueberry glaze onto each filet. Place the fish under the broiler for 3 minutes.

8. Remove from the oven and brush an additional layer of glaze onto the filets.

9. Place back under the broiler for an additional 3 to 5 minutes. Salmon should be flaky when pressed with a fork, but not dry.
