Kitchen Guy – Salmon Fillets with Almonds and Strawberries
Salmon Fillets with Almonds and Strawberries
4 salmon fillets, skin on, about 6-7 oz each
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup strawberries, chopped, plus additional for garnish
1/2 cup dry red wine
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 medium shallot, diced
1 stick unsalted butter, cubed
2 Tbsp cream
Preheat oven to 350. Pour almonds into a wide dish.
Chop strawberries and set aside. Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add red wine, red wine vinegar, and diced shallot. Cook until liquid is reduced by half – to about 1/4 cup. Add the cream, followed by the cubed butter and continue cooking, stirring until the butter is fully melted and incorporated.
Take the sauce off the heat and keep warm.
In a medium skillet, add a film of oil. Salt and pepper the fish. Dip the salmon fillets into the almonds and coat well. When the oil shimmers, add the salmon, almond-coated side down and cook until the almonds are golden. Turn the fillets, skin side down, and place in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes until cooked to your liking.
Add the chopped strawberries to the sauce and mix well. Place the salmon on a plate and top with the strawberry sauce.
