a healthy and great side dish. Cheers~

 

Ingredients

 

Preparation and Design

2 cups fresh blackberries

1/2 cup blackberry wine

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

black pepper to taste

2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

 4 - 6 ounce flounder fillets

( or any type fish that you like )

 

 

 

 

 

Wash, slice, and chop the blackberries coarsely.

In your saucepan, combine the blackberries, blackberry

wine, honey, balsamic vinegar, and a pinch of salt.

 

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer

uncovered about 8-10 minutes, until sauce is slightly

thickened to your look and style.

 

As this is sautéing, take your fish and lightly sprinkle

on both sides the cinnamon, cayenne, and black pepper.

 

Then in your second skillet, bring the evoo to

medium-high. Sauté the flounder for around 2 minutes,

flip, and do another 2 minutes on the other side, until

the look perfect. With all fish, it really depends on

the size as to rather or not you'll need just an

extra minute on each side to cook.

As the fish is plated, top with blackberry sauce.
