  1. Pour 1/2 cup chicken stock, vinegar, orange juice, and honey into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium. Dissolve cornstarch in 1/4 cup of chicken stock, and stir into the simmering sauce. Cook and stir until the sauce thickens and turns clear, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the blueberries and chives, and keep warm over low heat.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high-heat.
  3. Brush salmon with oil, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve with blueberry sauce.

We thought this was a fantastic recipe. Please note: you must reduce the sauce once you've added the balsamic vinegar by letting it simmer. Otherwise it will taste like vinegar. Balsamic vinegar reduction has a wonderfully sweet and flavorful taste.

nice recipe the only problem is that you can't add cornstarch or any other thickening agent into a hot liquid it must be COLD! or other wise the starch molecules will cook on the outside before the inside hence the ole lump syndroom

Delicious! I only had salmon filets which worked well. Baked them in the oven after brushing lightly with olive oil, squeezing on a bit of fresh lemon, and lightly dusting with seasoned salt, lemon pepper and dill. Didn't have any honey so I added about a tsp. of brown sugar to the sauce. Served with mashed red bliss potatoes and steamed asparagus. Extra bonus: The blueberry sauce was simply fabulous on the asparagus as well as the salmon!

We made this last night and I have to say that it was a total waste of time and money. If I could give less than one star I would. I followed this recipe without variations until I could do no more. The balsamic totally overpowered the berries. After doubling the OJ and honey it still was not improved. I added a whole tbs of sugar and a bit of vanilla to no avail. I don't know what purpose the chives served in this sauce. I couldn't taste any hint of them let alone see them etc. When my husband dropped the fish on the ground by accident I think that was sign from above to spare us this dish. We would have ate the fish without the sauce and I know I would have like that. Dinner was ruined with or without this sauce. We ended up having cheeseburgers. Factoring in the cost of that; this meal cost us in the neighborhood of $30 for the two of us to eat at home. I want my money back!!!

this was delicious. my husband doesn't even like blueberries, but he loved this sauce. i didn't have any fresh orange juice so i substitued fresh lemon juice and added more honey. a chicken bouillion cube made the broth since i didn't have broth on hand.

I did not like this at all, and I love salmon. Maybe that's why - I'm somewhat of a salmon purist, as I think it is such a flavorful fish it really doesn't need a sauce this strong. Also, I think the balsamic vinegar is way too strong in this. I won't make this again with salmon, but I may tweak the sauce and try it with something like pork or chicken. Too bad - I love the thought of using blueberries is something other than muffins/breads or dessert....

I thought this was fantastic. I had a bunch of blueberries that I needed to use and was so excited when I found this recipe. I reduced the balsamic first and that made a huge difference in the sauce not being too overpowering in the vinegar department. I had a big salmon fillet so I baked it in the oven with some butter and light seasoning and the sauce was absolutely delicious with it. Served with wild rice and green beans and both my husband and I loved it! I will definitely make this again.

I used seasoned rice vinegar with basil and oregano, after reading that balsamic overwhelmed the salmon. One of the best dishes I have ever made. Serve with wild rice and a spinach salad with a few fresh blueberries. A glass of Pinto Grigio and a French Apple Tart for dessert.
