Found this recipe over on epicurious and modified it to fit my larder. Served 5 of them this weekend at a wedding reception. They were gone in a flash.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup frozen berries, thawed (original recipe calls for balckberries, but I used a mix of black, blue, and raspberries)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 lime, zest of
  • 12 lime, juice of
  • 1 tablespoon golden brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 12 teaspoons dried chipotle powder (whole chipotle, or dried jalapenos, can be found in the ethnic section of your supermarket and groun)
  • 1 (2 1/2-3 lb) salmon, whole side, skin on, about 3/4 inch thick, pin bones removed (I got some from Costco that were lovely)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Press berries through sieve into medium bowl. Discard seeds (though I added a bit of the seedy pulp for texture).
  3. Transfer 1/4 cup berry puree to medium bowl.
  4. Whisk in honey, butter, lime zest and juice for glaze.
  5. Spray rimmed baking sheet with non-stick spray.
  6. Mix brown sugar, cumin, salt, and chipotle in a bowl.
  7. Rub flesh side of salmon with spice mixture and place coated side up on baking sheet. Brush with glaze (you may want to reserve some glaze for dipping later though I didn't).
  8. Bake salmon until just opaque in center, about 20-25 minutes.
