Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons grapeseed oil (or butter, or other neutral oil)
  • 2 garlic cloves (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 ½ pounds salmon filet (skin-on)
  • 1 lemon (zest and juice)
  • 2 tablespoons capers (drained)
  • ½ cup white wine
  • salt
  • pepper
  • ¼ cup basil (or parsley, chopped for garnish)

Instructions

  • Heat a large skillet over a medium-high heat. When it’s heated, add the oil. Add the garlic, immediately followed by the salmon, skin side up. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the salmon just starts to sear
  • Turn it over, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and the lemon zest, over the fish
  • Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes, and add the lemon juice and capers to the pan
  • When the fish is cooked to your liking, remove it from the pan. Carefully add ¼ cup of wine to the pan (as it may splatter), and scrape any bits from the pan with a wooden spoon. Add the remaining wine to the pan, and bring to a simmer
  • Pour the liquid from the pan over the salmon, and serve immediately

Notes

Serve with rice, potatoes, quinoa, or your favorite side dish
