How to Make It

Step 1

Season the fish with the salt and black pepper.

Step 2

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the fish and cook for 3 minutes.  Turn the fish over and cook for 1 minute.  Remove the fish from the skillet.  Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel.

Step 3

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the shallots and garlic and cook and stir for 3 minutes or until tender.

Step 4

Stir in the wine and cook for 3 minutes or until the wine is almost evaporated.  Stir in the stock and heavy cream and heat to a boil.  Reduce heat to medium.  Cook for 15 minutes or until the mixture is reduced to about 3/4 cup, stirring often.  Stir in the dill.

Step 5

Return the fish to the skillet.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

    So flavorful!

    My family loves gravy so I doubled up on the liquid ingredients. I also substituted by using heavy whipping cream because that's all the market had. I've made this recipe twice this month. It's a huge hit! Plus, it tastes just as good the next day for lunch leftovers. I make yellow rice and mixed Normandy veggies with it.

    Easy but timing is key.

    This was a big hit. Everything went smooth but next time I will be careful to make sure the salmon is cooked more in the first step. In the last step, when I returned the salmon to the sauce pan that now had the sauce in it, I discovered the salmon needed more time to finish. As a result I had to cook it longer and the sauce began to reduce to near paste consistency. I added more stock and cream to get back to a sauce consistency as still had some on hand, but a panicky finish. Bottom line: Make sure you cook the fish sufficiently in the first step so you only need a few minutes in the pan during the last step.
