Grilled Salmon Fillet with Spicy Blackberry Sauce

It’s summer, and that means it’s time for grilling in the backyard, but maybe you want a break from the usual burgers or steaks or hot dogs?

This spicy, but sweet and tasty fish dish will hit the spot.

What You need

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries, washed and drained
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened white grape juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (a little goes a long way with vanilla so don’t overuse it. )
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of your favorite hot sauce (Frank’s red hot is a good choice).

How to make it

  1. Heat your grill.
  2. Grill salmon fillets on hot grill for around 4-5 minutes on each side, until they reach desired level of done-ness.
  3. Make the Sauce:
    1. In a food processor or blender, combine sauce ingredients and blend until smooth.
    2. To serve, top each cooked fillet with 3 tablespoons of sauce.
