Salmon Scampi with Wine

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fish, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 lb Salmon fillets
  • 2 tb Bacon drippings
  • 6 tb Butter or margarine
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • -- crushed and minced
  • 1/2 ts Oregano leaves
  • 1/2 ts Thyme leaves
  • 1 ts Whole tarragon
  • 2 tb Lemon juice
  • 1/2 c Dry Marsala wine


Trim fillets to 1-1/2" pieces-uniform thickness. In frying pan, slowly cook
1-2 strips of bacon, or enough to yield 2 tablespoons drippings. Remove
bacon and use for another dish. Saute the salmon in the bacon drippings
over medium heat, turning gently. Remove to a baking dish and keep warm.
Deglaze pan with a little of the wine and scrape the residue from the pan
over the fish. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the
garlic and spices. Cook, stirring over medium low heat, for 2-3 minutes to
extract the flavors. Remove from heat and add the wine and lemon juice.
Pour this sauce over the fish. Bake at 400 degrees F. for 10 minutes. Serve
over rice, spooning pan juices over all. Garnish with lemon wedges and
finely chopped parsley.

Variation: Substitute dry white wine for the Marsala for a lighter, less
rich dish.
