Bronzed Alaska Salmon in a Butter-Wine Sauce

Prep Time: Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: : 12 minutes | Servings: Servings: 4


4 Alaska Salmon steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
2 Tablespoons of your favorite seafood seasoning
¼ cup white wine or chicken broth
1 Tablespoon butter


Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska 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, about 3 to 4 minutes, 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 4 to 6 minutes for frozen salmon OR 1 to 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout and sauce is reduced. Drizzle sauce over salmon when serving.

    That looks amazing. We don’t eat nearly enough salmon as we should. I will have to try this!
