Take the pan off the heat, add lemon juice to reduction and with a wire whisk, incorporate blackberry preserves and butter.
Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill salmon on both sides until just cooked through, about 4 minutes per side. Serve grilled salmon with sauce on top, and garnish with berries.
