Imagine making a restaurant entrée in your own home. You’ll want to eat in! Serve with fragrant Basmati rice or baked new potatoes and a salad of dark greens. For the best bistro results, just remember – the sauce can wait for the fish, but the fish can’t wait for the sauce!  

Ingredient list

Ingredients for Servings



3TbspApres Vin Merlot Oil
3TbspShallots, peeled & finely diced
1tspThyme, fresh leaves
3leavesBay leaf, dried
0,25tspSalt
0,25tspPepper
3TbspWhite Wine Vinegar
3TbspWater
2,50lbsSalmon, Coho or Sockeye
2TbspButter, unsalted
4TbspParsley, stemmed and finely chopped

Preparation

  1. Grease a 13” x 18” baking sheet and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  3. Heat 1 Tbsp of the Apres Vin Merlot Oil over medium heat in a deep saucepan. When a drop of water flicked into the pan sizzles, the oil is ready.
  4. Add the shallots, thyme, bay leaf, salt and pepper to the oil and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add the white wine vinegar and the water to the oil mixture. Increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook at a high simmer until the mixture is reduced by half, about 5 minutes.
  6. While the vinegar mixture is reducing, cook the fish: place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet and place the sheet in the preheated oven. Roast 10-15 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque and the flesh flakes easily with a fork.
  7. While the salmon is roasting, whisk the butter, the remaining 2 Tbsp of the Apres Vin Merlot Oil and the parsley into the vinegar mixture. Whisk the sauce well to combine. Set aside in a warm place if the salmon is not yet ready.
  8. When the salmon is ready, remove it from the oven.
  9. Remove the bay leaves from the sauce and discard. Spoon the sauce over the cooked fish and serve immediately.
