When I first saw this recipe on This Woman Cooks, I knew that I would have to add it to the food calendar asap. It incorporates another set of my favorite ingredients…salmon, white wine and lemon juice!! When I finally got around to making this (after having it on the calendar for awhile, and having to keep pushing it back), it worked out really well. It happened to be one of my super-cook nights (when I cook multiple meals in one night), and K had to work a little late so I was able to get all three (yes, three) meals cooked before he got home! That meant we could eat dinner together, talk about our day, and then just spend time together, without me having to be in the kitchen all night. Win!
The sauce was really quite delicious, and I even soaked up the excess with my roasted potatoes as I was eating. Nom nom nom. If you love (or even slightly like) salmon, you should definitely give this recipe a try!!
Salmon with White Wine and Lemon Sauce
Source: This Woman Cooks
- 2 Salmon Fillets
- Salt and pepper
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 shallot, diced
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 Tbsp fresh Italian parsley, chopped
- 1/2 lemon
- Heat a skillet over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray. Season both sides of the salmon fillets with salt and pepper. When the skillet is very hot, sear each side of the salmon, 2-3 minutes per side. Salmon is done when it is slightly opaque and flaky. Remove salmon and cover to keep warm.
- In the same pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Saute shallots until softened and beginning to color, about 1 1/2 minutes. Add wine and bring to boil. Boil until reduced to 1/4 cup, about 3-5 minutes. Whisk in butter and parsley. Squeeze in half a lemon. Spoon over fish.
