Super Delicious Salmon Sauce


One of my favorite meals is salmon, Alaskan Wild Caught Salmon is the best! I have always pan cooked it with butter, adding more butter with lemon drizzled over the top. It’s SO DELICIOUS not to mention a healthy meal.  This is a blog I previously wrote about my lemon/butter covered salmon plus I have listed the health benefits.  Salmon with Lemon/Butter Sauce  But the other day I came up with a new and super delicious salmon sauce! I’m sure this is going to be my favorite now!



Here is my mouth-watering recipe for my Blackberry/Raspberry Sauce.

1/2 cup of water

1/2 cup of sugar

1/8 cup fresh (or frozen) each of blackberries and raspberries

4 ounces blackberry (or raspberry) preserves

Ad the water, sugar and berries in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and continue to cook about 5 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the blackberry preserves and cook on low heat until the preserves dissolves.  Remove from heat while salmon is cooking.

To cook my salmon, I add butter (I like real butter but can also use olive oil) and when butter has melted, add the salmon, skin side down.  Brown the salmon on medium high and flip to the other side, browning that side also.  Once both sides are browned, I turn the heat down to medium and finish cooking the salmon until the inside is pink.


After placing my salmon on the plate, I stir up the berry sauce again and drizzle it over the salmon.  The sauce permeates in the salmon and what a delicious, mouth water dinner! I picked summer squash and peppers from the garden and sautéed them to go with the salmon.  My new sauce is definitely a 5 star and gives the salmon the most awesome taste.

Now here’s the cool thing about this sauce.  When I first made it, I wasn’t sure how much I should make so I came up with the above amounts.  There was extra left over and there are so many ways to use it!  Of course the first thing that came to mind was as a topping with ice cream or cheese cake but it would also be delicious drizzled over hot cereal.


I made a chocolate milk shake and added two teaspoons of the sauce to the ice cream and blended it with the milk.  I topped that with whipped topped and drizzled a small amount of the blackberry/raspberry sauce over the topping. Talk about a super yummy treat!  Now vanilla ice cream isn’t my favorite but I think by added some of the blackberry/raspberry sauce, it could change my mind.  So what started out as a super delicious salmon sauce ended as a topping on desserts!

    The first time I ever actually liked salmon was at a banquet an excellent restaurant had catered…the salmon was encrusted in hazelnuts and had a raspberry sauce on it…fabulous! So I know your sauce is awesome for salmon! Good job Martha!

  2. Martha says:

    I have hazelnuts in the fridge Katherine, I never thought of adding them but the salmon you describe sounds delicious! I love berries and this sauce really hits the spot! So glad you already got to taste the raspberry sauce. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Ruthanne says:

  9. Martha says:

    It is delicious Gaetane! I love salmon and this just tops it! But the other thing is using it on desserts! Thanks for stopping in my kitchen!

  10. Martha says:

    If you try it, I’d love to know what you think Gaetane!

  11. Martha says:

    I’m so use to having lemon/butter on my salmon but this is by far much tastier! Thanks for visiting.

  12. Martha says:

    That is now my favorite sauce Kathleen! It’s sooooooooooooo good! Thanks for visiting.

  13. Martha says:

    Oh my, YES to pancakes! I’ll be drizzling it over warm chocolate cake or a brownie with vanilla ice cream! Thanks for the extra ideas Glenda!

  14. Martha says:

    I love thinking outside of the box for everything Ruthanne! But when I was making it, I never gave a thought of using it on desserts. It think it would be delicious on cheese cake. Thanks for stopping, let me know how you like it when you try!

  15. Martha says:

    I was licking the spoon Carol! LOL It is so delicious!

  16. Alana says:

    I love salmon. It’s raspberry harvest season where I live and I can get blackberries at the local supermarket. I personally wouldn’t use the preserves but if you wanted multi-use with ice cream I agree that would be best. I think I would take the additional straining the raspberries. I made a delicious raspberry apple sauce last year but it was so full of seeds – my dental work didn’t appreciate it!

  17. Martha says:

    OH MY, raspberry apple sauce sound super delicious too! I used seedless preserves and the next time I make this, I’m going to use just raspberries and see the taste difference. Fresh raspberries, how great! Thanks for visiting Alana, let me know if you try this!

  18. Sheryl says:

    I think I may try this, only without sugar, using stevia and erythritol. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Martha says:

    That would work Sheryl. I was even thinking of trying it without any sugar, just the berries and perserves since the berries are sweet enough. Let me know how you like it!

  20. Bellybytes says:

    That looks and sounds yummy. I love salmon too though I find it a tad heavy.

  21. Martha says:

    I was thinking the sauce would probably be great on just about anything Bellybytes. I remember when I was young, my grandmother would use a mint sauce on pork, thinking I may try my blackberry one next time. Thanks for visiting.

  22. Sandy KS says:

    Wow, that looks and sounds yummy!I am going to have to try that sauce.

  23. Martha says:

    It is the best Sandy! I usually make a lemon/butter sauce but this is now my all time favorite. I prepared salmon again yesterday and I coated the top with the sauce will cooking and the flavor went all through and was that ever delicious! Let me know if you try it!
