One of the great things about a farm share is that you are forced to be creative.  I don’t tend to do a lot with fresh dill (I know, terrible) but the Alaskan sockeye salmon I picked up from a fisherman at the farmer’s market that begged to join the dill party, so I came up with this! (note that I served it with leftover millet and some fresh local asparagus).

Ingredients:

Sockeye Salmon Fillets

3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 shallot, diced

1/2 cup white wine

2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

Methods

Preheat broiler and lightly season fillets with salt and pepper.  Place in oven and cook until salmon is cooked through, approximately 6-10 minutes.

Melt butter with olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted.  Add the shallots and cook until soft, approximately 2 minutes.

Add the wine until reduced by half, about 3 minutes

Stir in Dijon, dill, sat and pepper

Pour over salmon fillets and enjoy!!
