The salmon is complimented with this delicate sweet sauce. This is a fast and easy recipe to prepare yet it is so special.

1 ½ pounds skinless salmon fillets* salt and pepper 1 tablespoon canola oil

Topping: 1/2 cup seedless, sugar-free blackberry jam 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Cut salmon into individual sized serving pieces. Place on a plate and season with salt and pepper on each side. In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil. Add salmon and cook over medium heat until salmon is lightly brown on all sides and cooked through in the middle.

While salmon is cooking, combine jam and vinegar in a small saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil while stirring. Continue to boil mixture for 1 minute. Remove from the heat.

When ready to serve salmon, top with warm blackberry sauce. Whisk or re-warm the sauce if it has thickened.

*If the salmon has skin on one side, first cook the salmon with the skin-side down in the pan. Turn salmon and remove the skin and any dark colored flesh. Salt and pepper that side and turn it to brown in the pan.

Serves 4
