Now back to this delicious Blueberry Glazed Salmon! You’ll line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with a nonstick spray of your choosing. Place the salmon on the baking sheet and season it with black pepper. Next, grab a small saucepan and turn the stove up to medium-high heat. Toss in the blueberries, balsamic vinegar, honey, rosemary and lemon juice until the blueberries release their juices. Pour half the mixture on the salmon and save the rest for later. Once the salmon is fully cooked, you’ll pour the remaining the mixture on the salmon.
