Guard this with your life!

Years ago my cousin sent me a salmon recipe. I'm not really a big fan of salmon but my husband is so we tried it. To my surprise, it was AMAZING! It became a favorite of mine and my cousin's. Well, not long after that - both of us lost the recipe! No hard copies, no email copies, nowhere to be found on the internet. It just vanished. It was a great loss.

Well, at the time my cousin gave me the recipe she also sent it to one of her coworkers. Now, years later she ends up working at the same place and reconnected with her old coworker. By the grace of the food gods, this man still had the salmon recipe!!!

So, this post today is serving two purposes: share this recipe with you and electronically preserve the recipe foreeeever.

Salmon with Mushroom Sauce

Four 6-oz skinless, center-cut salmon fillets

1/4 cup fresh orange juice


4 Tbs, plus 2 tsp unsalted butter

1 garlic clove, minced

1 lbs, sliced cremini or oyster mushrooms

Fresh, ground pepper

8 medium scallions, cut into 2-in lengths

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/2 cup vegetable stock

1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Preheat broiler
  • Lay salmon fillet in a baking dish
  • Pour orange juice over the fillets
  • Season with salt
  • Let stand for 5 minutes
  • Turn fillets and let stand for 5 more minutes
  • Meanwhile, melt 4 Tbs of butter in a large skillet
  • Add garlic and cook over moderate-high heat
  • Add mushrooms
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • Cover and cook until mushrooms have released their liquid, about 5 minutes
  • Add scallions and stir occasionally until browned, about 5 minutes
  • Add wine and boil for 1 minutes
  • Add stock and cream and simmer for 3 minutes
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper
  • While the sauce simmers, transfer salmon to a rimmed baking sheet, skin-side down
  • Top each fillet with 1/2 tsp of remaining butter
  • Broil fillets about 5 inches from the heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Do not turn.
  • Spoon sauce on plates and set salmon on top
  • E-N-J-O-Y
If you know someone who doesn't like salmon much, have them try this recipe. The sauce is really the highlight of the recipe and complements the salmon flavor very well.
