4salmon filetswe used Sockeye
8cupslettucewe use green leaf
1tspExtra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
Balsamic Blueberry Sauce
green onions, seeds, additional blueberries
Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil and drizzle lightly with olive oil or spray with a non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium-sized saucepan combine Balsamic Blueberry Sauce ingredients. Heat on medium-low until reduced in half, approximately 20 minutes. Watch closely towards the end of cooking to prevent burning. Lightly mash any remaining whole berries. The sauce will thicken as it cools.
Place the salmon on the rimmed baking sheet skin-side down. Drizzle lightly with olive oil. Salt and pepper lightly. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer measure 120°F and fish is flaky. I removed the foil from the pan with the fish on it immediately to stop any further cooking.
Fill plates with lettuce and any other desired ingredients such as nuts, green onions, or additional blueberries. Top with salmon and a spoonful the balsamic blueberry sauce. Salad can be spritzed with additional olive oil and balsamic or a vinaigrette if desired.
2 cups are considered a portion of lettuce but feel free to fill up that bowl.
