Salmon With Blackberry Sauce Recipe

Salmon is one of our favorite seafood proteins – it’s easily available in nearly all markets, simple to prepare, and above all, versatile. This recipe really shows off the different ways that salmon can be served by featuring a non-traditional blackberry sauce that you’ll prepare at home.

Salmon With Blackberry Sauce

The sauce makes this dish a great way to change things up at dinnertime and may even entice picky eaters to try fish. The best part is that this dish comes together extremely quickly – less than 30 minutes – which is the perfect amount of time for a weeknight when things are already hectic.

Another wonderful attribute of this dish is the nutritional content offered. Salmon is high in things like Omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, and an assortment of other micronutrients. While these make salmon an appealing option, there’s also a negative side to consider.

Unfortunately, most salmon sold in the United States is farm-raised, which has been shown to offer less in terms of nutritional content in addition to being of questionable ethics.

Wild-caught salmon, while more expensive, is the better choice – look for it specifically at your seafood counter, or, if you’re lucky enough to live on the coast, visit a local fisherman’s market to see what they have available.

This dish stands out due to the flavors presented here, so consider adding a side dish that’s a bit simpler and flavor neutral – this will help you prevent overpowering your palate and save you time in the kitchen. A great option for this is the mashed cauliflower or Dijon and pecan asparagus.
