Grilled Salmon with Savory Blueberry Sauce

Here is another savory blueberry recipe.  It is my last one for now. The next few will be for sweet or semi-sweet blueberry items.  What I have learned in my quest for blueberry recipes is that you can make a sauce for just about any meat you want to eat with blueberries.  I will have to see if I can find anything for grilled veggies like Mushrooms with Blueberry Sauce or something like that.    This is a good one for a summer barbecue. 


Servings:  4


½ cup chicken stock
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup orange juice
1 teaspoon honey
1 tablespoon cornstarch
¼ cup chicken stock
1 cup fresh blueberries
2 teaspoons chopped fresh chives
4 (8 ounce) salmon steaks
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste


1.      Pour ½ cup chicken stock, vinegar, orange juice, and honey into saucepan.  Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce to medium.  Dissolve cornstarch in ¼ cup of chicken stock and stir into simmering sauce.  Cook and stir until the sauce thickens and turns clear, about 1 to 2 minutes.  Stir in the blueberries and chives.  Keep warm over low heat.

2.       Preheat grill to medium high heat.

3.       Brush salmon with oil.  Season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.  Serve with blueberry sauce.

Wild Blueberry Sauteed Mushrooms & Wild Blueberry Maple Atlantic Salmon

These recipes come from the Granite Town Farms website.  Granite Town Farms sells gourmet foods.  The recipes sound simple and delicious!  Click on this link to see why wild blueberries are healthier that cultivated blueberries.  Now I understand why people will pull over on the side of a road to pick berries!  Still, that seems a bit risky to me.
