Blueberry Mint Balsamic Glazed Salmon

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend.  I know we did.  We spent time with family; specifically my mom, grandma, aunts, and cousins.  It was a fabulous ladies weekend (with the exception of my little boy and my cousin’s little boy).  We went out to eat, went shopping, spent time at the children’s museum, and caught up with each other’s lives.  My grandma, aunts, and cousins live in Idaho, so we don’t get to spend as much time together as I would like.  

Anyways, moving right along…hopefully you are all in the mood for a delicious weeknight summer recipe.  This particular recipe looks and sounds way more complicated than it is, but it comes together super fast with just a handful of ingredients.  It is a great way to impress a crowd!  Plus it is nutrient dense.  Blueberries are full of antioxidants and salmon is full of omega 3 fatty acids and essential amino acids, just to name a few.  I served mine over brown rice, allowing the rice to soak up the excess glaze – it was delicious!  I recommend adding it to your weekly dinner menu immediately.

  2. I loved this! The sauce ended up being a bit sweet which I think can be avoided if you use 100% pure maple syrup. I would also recommend substituting basil for the mint and fermenting the brown rice for at least a day beforehand.
