salmon improvisation


Does it happen to you that you wake up knowing you want to eat something particular? It happened to me the other day, I was craving for salmon (grilled that is, I eat a lot of it raw in the form of sushi…). I found 2 beautiful filets at the fish counter and created the recipe while grocery shopping, getting inspired by what I was passing by…



This recipe is SUPER SIMPLE to make and you could use any veggie you like to accompany the salmon. I went for leek and wild rice but zucchini, mushrooms or peppers would work great too.



Salmon improvisation

You will need (for 2 person)

2 nice salmon filets (150 gr. each)

2 leeks

1 dl of vegetable broth

1 dl of dry white wine

2 dl of cream

salt and pepper to taste

wild rice (pasta is delicious with salmon as well…)

Start by pre-heat the oven to 50c. Grill the salmon for 2 minutes on each side (the crust is important, it will maintain the fish when you put in in the sauce again), set aside on a plate and put in the oven.

While your rice is cooking, use the pan you grilled the salmon in, pour in the white wine and let reduce for 1-2 minutes, add the broth, again, let reduce for 4-5 minutes until it gets a thicker consistence. Pour in the pieces of leek, stir for 1-2 minutes and pour in the cream. Let cook for about 10 minutes, and add the grilled salmon into the pan. Taste the sauce and add salt or pepper if needed.

Serve with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and enjoy!
