Salmon with Blackberry Balsamic Sauce (gluten, dairy, corn, soy and refined sugar free)



Salmon is one of my favorite fish to eat. I recently started making this blackberry, balsamic glaze and it gives a really nice variation to this dish. I don't like sauces that are too sweet, so this one has the perfect amount of sweetness without any added sugar. Make sure to use a jam that is sweetened with fruit only, not sugar.
Ingredients
For the Salmon:
2 salmon portions
sea salt
freshly gound black pepper
olive oil
For the Glaze:
2 tablespoons of blackberry jam (I use fiordifrutta)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
sea salt
2 cloves garlic grated
small chunk of fresh ginger grated
Directions
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Drizzle olive oil on a baking dish and lay salmon on top skin side down. Season with salt and pepper.



Bake for about 15 minutes until cooked through. While the salmon is cooking make the glaze. For the Glaze, grate the ginger and garlic and put into a bowl. I love my OXO grater. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk together.



  




When done, pour glaze over cooked salmon. I served these with broccoli and dirty mashed potatoes (skin left on)!

Enjoy!
