Oh So Blueberry & Goat Cheese Wild Alaska Salmon

Serves two.

Two 8 oz Wild Alaska Salmon fillets

½ cup goat cheese (we use Laura Chenel brand), shaped into two rounds

40 blueberries

2 tbsp minced fresh organic basil leaves, stems removed

4 tbsp orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Cointreau)

  1. Broil Salmon for 6-8 minutes.
  2. Top with goat cheese and broil until goat cheese melts—don’t take your eye off of it—this should take approximately 2 minutes, but every broiler is different. Remove from broiler.
  3. In a small sauté pan, “bloom” blueberries on medium-high heat. Cook blueberries and orange liqueur with the basil for 1 minute. (Do not overcook.)
  4. Spoon the blueberry/basil mixture over goat cheese and Salmon. Then pour remaining liquid into a small ramekin for dipping.
