Pan-fried Alaska wild caught salmon
A very simple dish the basis of which is the quality of the prime ingredient that we pair with a Collio Friulano 2018 Ronco Blanchis.
Ingredients for 4 people:
4 wild Alaska salmon fillets of around 150g each, 1 scallion, a rosemary sprig, 3 tablespoons dry white wine, the juice of 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, salt and pepper as desired.
Clean the salmon fillets leaving the skin and dry well with a paper towel.
Make a sauce with the rosemary, chopped scallion, lemon juice and peel, white wine, a tablespoon of EVOO, salt and pepper. Mix everything well together in a bowl.
Put the other tablespoon of EVOO in a non-stick pan together with the chopped scallion top.
Heat the pan and when it is nice and hot put in the salmon fillers skin down and baste with the prepared sauce.
Cook the fish for around 4 minutes. Turn the fillets over once the skin becomes crispy and fry for another 3 minutes (the inside must remain pink).
Serve with crispy cooked vegetables.
