Ingredients

  • 1 1½-pound salmon fillet, skin removed
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place the salmon fillet on a rimmed baking sheet, and season with salt.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter in a small saucepan. Whisk in the flour, cooking for 1 minute, then stir in the wine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium low.
  • Simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the chives and season with salt and pepper.
  • Break the salmon into large chunks, and serve topped with the sauce.

Notes

Cook's Note:If you want to make a fine dining look, simply break the portions of salmon into 2-ounce portions. If you want to add a little zing to the sauce, add in fresh dill and/or capers to your taste.
