I've served this dish a number of times, made exactly as directed. Definitely splurge for a high quality wine - delicious and elegant!
I only made half a recipe, it was just right for the three of us. The straining the blackberries took longer that I thought it would. Other than that, the recipe came together easily enough for a weeknight dinner and received rave reviews. The Blackberry-Cab Coulis would also be good on chicken, turkey, other fish - just about most meat! I served the salmon and sauce with crisp asparagus and baked red potatoes. YUM
