Salmon with Berry-Juniper Sauce

Salmon with Berry-Juniper Sauce

This recipe is a mix of a compote I do for pork tenderloin and the Juniper Sauce recipe from Michel Roux’s Sauce book. The delicious, sweet sauce is a great pairing with salmon.


4 6-oz salmon fillets
1 cup full-bodied red wine (reduce by 1/2 for SIBO friendly)
14 juniper berries, crushed (or 1 tsp ground juniper berries)
3 cup frozen berries
4 tbs maple syrup (omit for SIBO friendly)
Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 300F.

 Season salmon with salt and pepper. Bake in oven for 20-30 mins or until done.

 In a saucepan, bring red wine, juniper berries, frozen berries, and maple syrup to a boil over medium heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce heat to low.

 Let bubble gently for 15 mins, or until the desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

 Serve salmon with sauce drizzled on top.
