I made this last night for the first time and everyone loved it. It’s going into my weekly menu recipe rotation.
As you can see I accidentally took a video instead of a picture so I just took a screen shot so I can post a pic.
Baked Salmon with Creamy Garlic sauce
3 TBS butter
3 TBS finely minced green onion
4 finely minced garlic cloves
1/4 cup white wine
1 TBS lemon juice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 salmon (whole fillet – slice into 6 pieces)
salt and pepper
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. (I used convection)
Melt butter in a small saucepan on medium heat and sauté onion and garlic until soft (about 4 min) if butter starts to brown, turn down the heat.
Add wine and lemon juice.
Let simmer slowly until reduced by half.
Meanwhile, place salmon on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Sprinkle salt and pepper.
Bake at 450 °F for 12-15 minutes or until just cooked through.
Don’t over-cook or your fish will be dry.
Once liquid for the sauce has reduced, and while salmon is cooking, add cream and pepper to sauce.
Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally while waiting for salmon to finish.
Taste and add lemon juice, salt or pepper to your taste preference.
Place salmon on a plate and top with the sauce.
Voila! Easy, excellent dish.
(I served it with parmesan roasted asparagus and a salad.)
