4 (6 oz) wild Alaskan salmon fillet portions
1 red onion, chopped finely
2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons raw organic sugar
2 tablespoons blackberry (or blueberry) preserves
2 cups organic blackberries, thawed
4 tablespoons organic balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
Sea salt and organic pepper
Add the onion and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil to a saucepan over medium-low heat and cook, stirring for 2‒3 minutes. Add the sugar and stir until it reaches a syrupy consistency.
Add the preserves and balsamic vinegar and stir to combine ingredients. Add berries and stir gently. Leave saucepan on very low heat to keep warm.
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to a pan large enough to hold the salmon, and set burner to medium heat.
While oil is heating, sprinkle salmon fillets with parsley, salt and pepper.
Add the salmon and cook 3‒4 minutes. Turn and cook 3‒4 minutes more, or until fish flakes easily.
Transfer the salmon to individual plates and spoon the compote over the fish.
