Blueberry salmon fillets

Serves 4

Ingredients
1 pound salmon
1 tablespoon olive oil
¼ cup shallots, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1¼ cups fresh or frozen (thawed) blueberries
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
15 leaves of basil, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place salmon on nonstick baking sheet and place in oven; check after seven 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; sauté until soft, about three to five 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.
