This Blackberry Lemon Salmon is a delicious and light dinner recipe that’s loaded with juicy berries and citrus zing! It’s super easy to cook too!
This is one of my favorite seafood recipes and I believe it deserves to shine, especially since it’s super easy (and gorgeous) too! Matt and I aren’t huge seafood fans, but I do like salmon from time to time, so this is the perfect meal for me when Matt isn’t around.
So back about 3 or 4 years ago when I was still working at the grocery store, I’d occasionally peek through the magazines when it was dead.
I think it was an issue of Better Homes & Gardens that had this recipe for a grilled steak with a blackberry sauce. I just had to try it and when I did, I wasn’t disappointed!
A few weeks later I thought to myself, I bet if I added some lemon, that blackberry sauce would be amazing on salmon. Well, it was, and now we’re here.
This recipe is so easy, it’s ready in less than 30 minutes and most of that is baking time! I think a lot of people feel like there’s a lot of skill that’s required to cook fish, and in some cases, there is, but not here.
We’re going to let the lemons, the tin foil, and the oven does just about all of the work! Once the fish is done, you’ll top it with the sauce loaded with shallots and burst blackberries.
Pair it with my Ramen Noodle Salad and my Maple Lemonade for a full summer meal!

Hi Amy, I’ve only ever made the recipe with salmon. I would think you would need to adjust the chicken baking time but could definitely cover in sauce once it’s baked through.
Can chicken breast be substituted for the salmon? I do not, repeat not, enjoy salmon.

Hammertoes have long plagued the human foot, causing pain and discomfort in shoes.
The mother will nurse them for 3-4 months until they are able to swim on their own. “Frozen” immobile toe and
ankle joints gain mobility.
I know, I was hesitant at first, but the blackberries add such a vibrant flavor!

I never would have thought to try combining blackberries with salmon.. but clearly it works. This looks delicious!
