Preparation

  • Prep Time - 15 mins
  • Cook Time - 12 min
  • Total Time - 27 mins
  • Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

  • 2 Atlantic salmon portions 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil 
  • 1 stick of butter 
  • juice of ½ lemon 
  • ¼ cup of chardonnay 
  • ¾ cup of heavy whipping cream 
  • 1 tablespoon of capers 
  • 1 ½ teaspoons of fresh chopped dill 
  • salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
  • 1 peeled and small diced shallot 
  • 2 finely minced cloves of garlic 

Method

  • Season the fish well on both sides with salt and pepper. 
  •  Add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium-high heat and once it begins to lightly smoke add in the fish and pan sear for 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • Once you flip the fish over add in 3 tablespoons of unsalted butter and generously baste the fish constantly until it is finished cooking, about 3 to 4 minutes. Set the fish aside and drain the fat from the pan. 
  • Add 1 tablespoon of butter to the pan and caramelize the shallots and garlic, about 3 to 4 minutes and deglaze with lemon juice and cook until the liquid is almost gone. 
  • Deglaze again with the chardonnay and cook it until it too is almost gone. 
  • Add in the cream and cook over medium heat until it becomes very thick, think alfredo sauce. 
  • Remove the pan from the heat and finish by whisking in the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter, capers, and dill. 
  • Spoon the sauce over top of the cooked salmon and enjoy.
