Process

Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. After washing blueberries, dry completely with paper towels. Add blueberries to small bowl; coat with 1/2 Tsp kosher salt and berbere spice. Arrange coated blueberries in a single layer on parchment-lined baking sheet. Roast until blueberries are bursting; about 15 minutes. Remove roasted blueberries, and the blueberry juice on the parchment paper, to a small bowl. Allow to cool to room temperature. Stir in remaining 1/4 Tsp kosher salt, green onions, orange bell pepper, orange juice, 3/4 Tsp orange zest, and 3/4 Tsp grated jalapeño.
  3. Combine brown sugar, remaining 1/2 Tsp kosher salt, and smoked paprika in shallow bowl. Generously coat salmon portions, turning salmon over several times in the brown sugar mixture until all of the mixture is coating salmon.
  4. Heat olive oil in large, nonstick skillet over medium heat. Place coated salmon portions in hot skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes, before carefully turning salmon over; cook additional 2-3 minutes, or until just cooked through and exterior is slightly caramelized.
  5. Arrange lettuce leaves on two plates. Top with salmon. Spoon blueberry salsa over salmon. Top salsa with remaining 1/4 teaspoon fresh orange zest and 1/4 teaspoon grated jalapeño. Serve with a navel orange half to be squeezed over salmon. Makes 2 servings.
