Salmon With Warm Blackberry and Shallot Compote

“This is a great dish to make during the summer when blackberries are in season and the salmon is at its prime,”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, toss the shallots, 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and the sugar. Spread in a baking pan and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until the shallots are lightly browned and soft.
  3. Remove from the oven and spoon shallots and syrup into a mixing bowl with a lid. Add the blackberries and raspberry vinegar and toss gently to mix the ingredients, being careful not to break up the berries. Cover the bowl and set aside.
  4. Place a nonstick skillet large enough to hold the salmon fillets without crowding over medium heat. When the pan is hot, add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. While oil is heating, mix together the flour, chervill, parsley, salt and pepper on a plate or a piece of waxed paper. Pat both sides of the salmon fillets in the flour mixture, then shake off the excess.
  5. When the oil is hot, add the salmon fillets and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook 3 to 5 minutes more or until the fish just turns opaque.
  6. To serve, transfer the salmon fillets to individual plates and spoon compote over the top of the fish.
