Salmon with Blueberry Mustard and Sour Cream

salmon with blueberry mustard and sour cream

I know that I have recently done a post featuring salmon. I'll admit it, salmon is probably my favorite fish. I could go on and on about how much I could eat it at any meal of the day, but that is time better spent cooking rather than preaching. So, here is a simple and delicious accompaniment to a nice fillet of salmon.


1 cup blueberries
2 - 3 heaping tbsp whole grain mustard
1 shallot, chopped
2 tbsp butter
salt and pepper to taste


In a pan over medium heat, add butter and cook until melted. Add finely chopped shallot and cook until starting to become translucent. Before the shallots have begun to brown, add blueberries, stirring in to coat with butter in the pan. As the blueberries begin to cook, they will start to soften. When they do, gently crush then with the back of a spoon. When the pan is full of a wonderfully purple paste, stir in mustard. Cook down for one minute to remove excess moisture. Season with salt and pepper and serve with salmon and a nice dollop of fresh sour cream.

We're going to try this over the weekend! Did you just bake that salmon in the oven?

I'll let you know how it turns out!

briefly cooked it on the stove. whatever method you use, just remember that is should still be a little rare in the center. happy cooking, sally!

Phil, if I may ask, precisely how did you cook this particular piece of salmon? It looks perfect. Just on the stove with some olive oil, I'm guessing, but high heat at first, then lower and cover? Do I only cook it on one side? Thank you very much for your time.
