This is how Barbecue Salmon with Blueberry-Ginger Sauce is brought into existence.
For preparing the sauce,
- Set to medium flame and sear the butter. Grab the ginger, cinnamon, garlic, salt, green onions and thyme and add to the butter. Cook for an approximate time period of 4 minutes.
- To this, add balsamic, water and the blueberry jam with constant stirring until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Bear in mind that water can be used to check the thickness of your sauce while balsamic can come to your rescue if sweetness exceeds the required intensity.
- Take it off the heat after seasoning with black pepper.
For grilling the salmon,
- On the barbecue preheated at 425 degrees F, place dried salmon with oil rubbed on all its sides. Use desired amounts of salt, cayenne and black pepper for seasoning.
- Make sure that your salmon goes skin side facing downward on the grill. Avoid poking into the fish and flipping it over.
- When fat appears at the surface of fish, it is your cue that the fish is cooked.
The cooked salmon can be served with hot prepared sauce. With this refreshing recipe, you can sit back and relax on a holiday.
