Blackberry Glazed Salmon

I usually choose recipes because they have something in them I like. Salmon is a great example of that. But isn’t it a huge bonus when a recipe has a couple of things you like (or love)? I think so, and that’s exactly why I am making this Blackberry Glazed Salmon today. I love blackberries, and I never get enough of them! Pairing them with salmon might be a genius move. Let’s find out if they work together.

This easy blackberry glazed salmon is a quick and delicious way to get in more heart-healthy omega-3s and antioxidants. Made with only 6 ingredients and in 15 minutes, you can get a healthy dinner on the table quickly!

The Ingredients

Short ingredient lists are wonderful, and this recipe only has eight ingredients. Balsamic vinegar, red wine, black pepper, and avocado oil were all in my pantry. I even had a bag of blackberries in the freezer. I usually like fresh ingredients, but I wasn’t about to buy something I already had.

That left the garlic, basil, and salmon fillets. I also went with frozen salmon fillets since they are already cut into perfect portions. It makes things easier, and I’m all about that!

The Process

I can’t believe such a beautiful recipe was so quick and easy! I had my Blackberry Glazed Salmon ready in a mere 19 minutes. That was even faster than the 25 minutes listed, and I thought that would be amazingly quick.

This recipe kicks off with the blackberry glaze. All I had to do was add all the ingredients except the salmon and oil to a small saucepan and wait for it to simmer. Once that happened, I used a potato masher to mash the blackberries. Then I let the glaze simmer and thicken while I made the salmon. Tip: Reserve 1-2 blackberries per fillet for garnish.

If you thought the glaze was easy, then the salmon will blow your mind! Heat the avocado oil in a nonstick skillet and season the salmon fillets. I used kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to make it a little extra special. Then pan fry the salmon for 4 minutes per side. I sliced a few basil leaves while the salmon cooked.

The blackberry glaze was ready about a minute before the salmon. Perfect timing! All that was left was to plate the freshly cooked salmon fillets and spoon on a bit of the glaze and top with a few slivers of basil.

This Blackberry Glazed Salmon was everything! The sweet blackberries and tart balsamic vinegar balanced each other and took away any trace of fishiness from the salmon. If that wasn't enough, the salmon was beautifully crisp on the outside and moist and tender inside. All this deliciousness was gorgeousness took an entire 19 minutes to make and looked like it took at least twice as long. This was most definitely a Pinterest success!
