Bronzed Alaskan Salmon
Prep time 5 minutes
Cook time 12 minutes
Serves 4
4 Alaskan Salmon fillets (6 oz each; sockeye, silver, or king), thawed
2 Tablespoons seasoning (e.g., our Organic Salmon Marinade mix)
1/4 cup white wine, chicken broth, or vegetable broth
1 Tablespoon butter
  • Thaw salmon overnight or immerse sealed packages in cold water for 20 minutes or until flexible. Rinse salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.

  • Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, 2 to 4 minutes (no more!), until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.

  • Turn salmon over and sprinkle with seafood seasoning. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook for 2 minutes; add the wine and butter to pan. Continue to cook, uncovered, an additional 2 minutes (sockeye and silver) to 4 minutes (king), just until fish is opaque throughout except for a small pink spot in the very center, and sauce is reduced. Remove salmon from heat, and cover as it self-cooks for 2-3 minutes. Drizzle sauce over salmon when serving.

Variation: For added flavor, capers may be added to the sauce just prior to removing from heat.
