Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet, about 3 tablespoons sauce, and 1/2 cup rice)

Omega-3-rich salmon fillets are moist and succulent when poached in the oven with a little wine and shallots. Serve with sautéed spinach or broccoli.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

To prepare fish, arrange fillets, skin sides down, in a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with wine, salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; top with shallots. Cover with foil; bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Step 3

To prepare sauce, combine mayonnaise and broth in a small skillet, stirring well with a whisk. Cook over medium-low heat until thoroughly heated (about 2 minutes). Remove from heat, and stir in chives, parsley, mustard, juice, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Serve fish and sauce over rice.

Luscious Yet Simple

Hard to believe that such an easy dish makes such an outstanding, flavorful meal, Preparing the salmon for the oven is oh so simple, and you can get the sides and the accompanying sauce ready while the salmon bakes so that dinner is on the table in about 30 minutes. The lemony mayonnaise-based sauce is absolutely delicious and if you serve this with asparagus or broccoli you've got the perfect sauce for your veggies as well. The richness of this dish makes you feel like you're eating a company-worthy dinner. It's worth every bit of 5 stars.

Wow, I can't believe that there are no reviews for this dish - it has been one of my family's favorites for years. My husband catches salmon, and I make this recipe for everyday AND company, serve it with rice and steamed broccoli. The cooking time is perfect for a nice thick piece of filet it is always moist. MAKE THIS, you won't be sorry!
