Baked Salmon

I picked up a couple things for my Mom at Costco. Since she was at my house, she helped me with the kids while I put dinner together. That was nice. Real nice! She also made a Chinese-style salad dressing for me while I made the wine sauce. The boys love that sweet dressing and will eat up all their salad and veggies with that dressing on it. 

The kids were hoping the salmon I bought was going to be served as salmon sushi. They love making their own little handrolls but that's something we do at my Mom's house. I baked the salmon with slices of lemon and served it with wine sauce. The best part about making wine sauce is enjoying a glass while I make it. :)

Baked salmon with lemon slices. Yum yum.

Serve with blanched spinach and a salad. DELISH!

Baked Salmon with Wine Sauce

Yield: 4-5 servings

  • salmon fillet (I used one from Costco)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • dill weed
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs garlic, minced
  • 1/3 c white wine (I used Sauvignon Blanc)
  1. Preheat oven to 450F.
  2. Line a baking sheet with edges with aluminum foil. Spray with oil.
  3. Place salmon on prepared sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Top with lemon slices.
  4. Bake for 15-20 mins. Then, I set oven to broil and broiled for about 5 mins to brown the top.
  5. While salmon is baking, prepare sauce. Melt butter over med-low heat, add garlic and cook for 2-3 mins. Add wine and cook for 6-8 mins or until sauce is reduced by half. 
  6. Place salmon on plate and pour wine sauce over top. Sprinkle with dill weed and eat immediately. ENJOY!
