Fresh rosemary and a little maple syrup infuse aromatic and faintly sweet flavor into this speedy seafood dish.
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets (1 inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced shallots
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
3/4 cup fresh orange juice (about 2 oranges)
1 tablespoon maple syrup
How to Make It
Sprinkle fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add fillets; cook 2 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan.
Recoat pan with cooking spray. Add shallots; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in wine and rosemary; cook 30 seconds or until liquid almost evaporates. Add juice and syrup; bring to a boil, and cook 1 minute. Return fillets to pan; cook 1 minute on each side or until thoroughly heated.
Seasoned haricots verts: Cook 1 pound haricots verts in boiling water 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain; rinse with cold water. Pat dry. Combine with 1/3 cup chopped roasted red bell pepper and 1/4 cup toasted pine nuts. Combine 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard. Toss with bean mixture.
Just made this tonight; my first attempt at a fish of any sort (I'm pushing 50, male, just getting into this cooking stuff) and it came off quite well. The prep time is a huge plus, and it tasted great. I followed the recipe pretty slavishly and liked it; for you more seasoned chef wannabees, the SO here thought maybe some Adobo seasoning would have been a plus. At any rate, a nice addition to add to the burgeoning repertoire. :-)
This recipe is amazing. It was fast, easy, inexpensive, and delicious -- what more could one ask for? We typically grill our salmon, so I was a bit hesitant to try this; however, I'm so glad I did. The fish was moist and very tasty. My husband is a "grill master". He commented that this recipe was better than what he makes on the grill. For me, this was the ulitmate compliment. I emailed the recipe to my sister; she made it and loved it! I'll definitely make this again!
We enjoyed this salmon recipe very much and will certainly repeat it. This is one of our favorite salmons although we used the Costco frozen patties instead of salmon filets. We have found those extremely fresh.
