Rice pilaf and asparagus or artichokes would make good accompaniments, and the suggested wine is a Blanc de Noir Sparkling Wine. Prep time for this luscious recipe is about 25 minutes.


Pan-Roasted Alaska Salmon with Champagne-Caper Vinaigrette

Serves 4

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons organic extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped shallots
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar
1
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons drained capers
2 teaspoons chopped fresh tarragon
Sea salt and organic black pepper
4 Alaska Salmon fillet portions (6 oz each)
2 tablespoons chopped Italian parsley

  • Pour 1/2 cup olive oil into a 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat; when hot, add shallots and garlic and stir often until limp but not brown, about 2 minutes. Scrape into a blender or food processor and add vinegar, lemon juice, and mustard; whirl until smooth. Pour mixture into a bowl or pitcher and stir in capers, tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste.

  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Rinse salmon portions and pat dry; sprinkle portions all over with salt and pepper. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in same frying pan over medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin side up, and cook until browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn salmon over, then transfer pan to the oven. Bake just until fish is opaque throughout, about 5‒7 minutes.

  • Transfer salmon to plates, drizzle with a little vinaigrette, and sprinkle with parsley. Serve remaining vinaigrette at the table to add to taste.
