With one of the highest antioxidant levels of all fruits, blackberries are abundant in gallic acid, rutin and ellagic acid, a known cancer preventive. SAUTÉED SALMON WITH BLACKBERRY SAUCE SERVES 4

• 1 1/2 cups blackberries, fresh or frozen
• 3/4 cup pineapple juice
• 1/4 cup ketchup
• 3 tablespoons brown sugar
• 1/4 teaspoon chile powder
• 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
• 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
• 4 salmon fillets (1 1/2 pounds total)
• Garlic salt and lemon pepper seasoning, to taste

1. Combine blackberries, juice, ketchup, brown sugar and chile powder in a saucepan. Whisk in cornstarch until thoroughly mixed. Bring contents of pan to a gentle boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes or until sauce thickens; set aside.

2. Heat olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add salmon fillets and sprinkle with garlic salt and lemon pepper to taste. Sauté for 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until fillets flake easily with a fork.

3. Remove sautéed salmon to individual plates and drizzle with blackberry sauce. Serve extra blackberry sauce on the side.
