Healthy Weeknight Dinner

Tonight, we tried a new salmon recipe and highly recommend it! This meal took a total of 20 minutes (my kind of weeknight dinner!) from start to finish. I paired the salmon with pan-seared asparagus and shallots, which really complimented the sauce on the salmon. Here's how to make this simple meal:

Roasted Salmon with White Wine Sauce

Ingredients:
  • 1 large skinless salmon fillet (1 1/2 pounds)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt. Roast until opaque throughout, about 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium. Add flour, and cook, whisking, 1 minute. Add wine, and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in chives; season with salt and pepper. With a fork, gently break salmon into large chunks, and serve topped with white-wine sauce.
Pan-Seared Asparagus with Shallots

Ingredients:
  • 1 bushel of asparagus
  • 1 medium sized shallot
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions:
  1. Thinly slice shallot and cut steps off of asparagus.
  2. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in pan on medium heat and then add the shallot. Cook the shallot until it's translucent about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add asparagus to pan and cook for another 6-7 minutes or until asparagus is tender.
