We love this with roast pork, turkey, or salmon...I just made it up one year and it stuck as a favorite fall side: (Enjoy salmon for the holiday--what a great idea!)

Hot! Cranberry Sauce

In a 3 qt heavy sauce pan, place 1# fresh cranberries, 1/2 lemon quartered, 1/2 large apple peeled and chopped, 2 cinnamon sticks, 1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes, and 1/2 cup (or more to taste) brown sugar. Add water to cover fruit, the pour in 1/2 cup red wine. Bring to a boil, and lower heat. Simmer for about 15 minutes until cranberries pop, fruit is softened, and mixture is thick. Stir frequently and add water if it becomes too dry. Remove lemon to serve or let your sour puss friend eat it. (Oranges can be used in place of lemons or in addition.) Serve hot or cold. Keeps well in refrigerator for several days. If you do not like spicy food, leave out the crushed red pepper.

Good for you! I was just today thinking that a whole salmon would be great for Thanksgiving. Perhaps roasted with (again perhaps) a stuffing. Definitely cranberries--sauce and/or a chutney. Brussels sprouts for sure. Maybe small round roasted or boiled potatoes rather than mashed. That's as far as I've gotten.

I think sautéed green beans with crispy shallots would go nicely with salmon and would also fit the Thanksgiving flavor profile.
