Prepare the Ingredients
Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Trim ends and halve Brussels sprouts. Peel and julienne shallot (cut into thin strips). Stem and coarsely chop parsley. Rinse salmon and pat dry.
Make the BBQ Sauce
Warm a small pan over medium heat and add blueberry preserves, blueberry BBQ seasoning blend, and cider vinegar. Cook for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
Cook the Brussels sprouts
Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add Brussels sprouts to pan and cook, stirring occasionally, for 8 minutes. Add shallot and cook for 2 minutes. Add balsamic and honey to pan and cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Transfer Brussels sprouts to a plate and wipe pan clean.
Cook the Salmon
Season both sides of salmon with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat 1 tsp. of olive oil in the same pan used to cook Brussels sprouts over medium-high heat then add salmon and cook for 3-4 minutes per side, or until flesh is opaque and flaky and a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees is reached.
Plate the Dish
Divide cooked Brussels sprouts between two plates. Place a piece of salmon on the Brussels sprouts, then drizzle or brush BBQ sauce over the salmon. Garnish with chopped parsley.
