Crisp Spiced Salmon with blackberries

Crisp Spiced Salmon with blackberries

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Serves 4


1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons oil
1 lbs sock-eye salmon fillet (I actually used the Trader Joe frozen variety)
1 cup fresh blackberries

Method of Preparation

1. Mix the lemon juice and maple syrup with the paprika, black pepper, cinnamon, cumin, salt and oil.
2. Cut the salmon into four pieces and rub with the marinade prepared above and set aside for 15 minutes.
3. Place on a baking pan and broil for about 7 minutes. Turn the fish, add the blackberries and broil for another 3 minutes. Note the fish should be gently browned at spots and the blackberries should barely begin to release their juices.
