Pan Seared White Wine Salmon

1lb. salmon, cut into individual portions
sea salt, to taste
coarse ground black pepper, to taste
olive oil

For the Sauce:
1/3c butter
1/4c white wine (I used Sauvignon Blanc)
1 TBSP lemon juice
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dill weed

1.  Preheat oven to 400*  Preheat cast iron skillet on stove over medium high heat.

2.  Using a spray bottle (or your hands) coat both sides of the salmon with olive oil.

3.  Salt and pepper each salmon piece, to taste.

4.  Add to preheated skillet and sear on both sides, 2-3 minutes.

5.  Remove skillet from burner and place straight into the preheated oven, allowing fish to continue cooking 7-10 minutes, or until the internal temp. is 145*. 

6.  While salmon is in the oven, add butter to a small saucepan and heat over low until melted.  Add wine, lemon juice, paprika, basil and dill.  Heat through and keep warm until ready to use.

7.  Remove salmon from oven and arrange on plates.  Pour sauce over the tops and serve. 
Served this last night with Garlic and Parmesan Orzo
and sauteed asparagus.


  1. That looks like something that would cost me a fortune if I went out to eat, I am totally drooling. And adding all the ingred. for this onto my grocery list pronto ;)
