Ingredients

  • 4 4-ounce fresh or frozen skinless salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen organic blueberries
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Snipped fresh chives (optional)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar or cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Directions

  • Thaw fish, if frozen, and blueberries. For sauce: In a small saucepan, cook and stir onion and garlic in hot oil about 3 minutes or until softened. Add blueberries, vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, and lemon peel. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until sauce has thickened and reduced to 1 cup.
  • Meanwhile, rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels. Lightly coat salmon with nonstick cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Measure thickness of salmon.
  • Place salmon on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling.
  • Serve blueberry sauce over salmon. If desired, sprinkle with chives.
