Add blueberries and coconut sugar to a sauce pan and simmer over medium heat.

I went to dinner with my parents recently and they took me to a cute ‘lil restaurant in my hometown. (I won’t say the name – you’ll get why in a minute.) I’ve been there a few times before and the food was always *pretty* good. Not uh-mazing or life changing, but good. However this night… WOMP WOMP. I ordered a blackened salmon with a blueberry sauce and – woof -that sauce. That sauce coulda brought my grandma back to life. It was literally dessert. No flavor, just sugar. And my salmon was DROWNING in this sauce. It was not a “leave you wanting more” kinda situation. No, this was an “all hands on deck – we’re sinking fast” type situation.
To summarize, I basically drank a lot more wine than I consumed food that night. But I left with a mission – right the wrong that happened to my poor salmon. Make a sauce worth pouring over everything. Get it right, get it tight – if you will. So I did that. And hot damn. I’m about to put this on my salmon, my ice cream, bring it to Thanksgiving, and walk it down the isle. It’s definitely better than the one I had that fateful night. So I hope you enjoy, and you never have to rescue your salmon again.
As per tradition on “Saucy Sunday” I conclude my recipe with a list of things I found especially wonderful this week. So enjoy!
