Pinot Noir-Poached Salmon
Yield: 4 servings
- 5 tablespoons butter, divided
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 carrots chopped
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 celery rib, chopped
- 1 (750-milliliter) bottle Pinot Noir
- 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a 10-inch, straight-sided skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and next 3 ingredients; sauté 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender and onion is lightly browned. Add wine; bring to a boil over high heat. Carefully place salmon into skillet. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and poach 5 minutes or until salmon flakes with a fork.
