Recipe Swap: Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce

Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata SauceIt's time for Blogger's Choice for this week's swap. I was given the blog Cheese Curd in Paradise, I have made her amazing recipe for Roti de Porc au Lait in an earlier swap, so I was excited to find another great recipe. When C goes out to dinner, this leaves me at home to cook all the fish I care to eat. Salmon is my most favorite fish and the creamy and tangy sauce appealed to me.  Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce is spectacular.  I made a quarter recipe of the sauce since it was just me and I wish I doubled it.  It was that good!  I got to use a lemon from my mom's tree, I just wish I had some of her dill on hand as well. 
Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce

1 pound center-cut salmon fillet, skinned and cut into 4 portions
1 cup dry white wine, divided
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 large shallot, minced
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 teaspoons capers, rinsed
¼ cup sour cream
¼ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

Place salmon in a large skillet. Add ½ cup wine and enough water to just cover the salmon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, turn the salmon over, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the remaining ½ cup wine; boil until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice and capers; cook 1 minute more. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream and salt. To serve, top the salmon with the sauce and garnish with dill.

Wow this looks incredible! I also cook finish whenever my fiancee isn't at home for dinner since she doesn't like it. I will definitely have to try this whenever I get a chance!

That looks great! I'm always looking for recipes that people I "know" say are good.

I'm allergic to shellfish (and hate the smell and taste of all seafood), but my husband loves it.

My problem is - I can cook a fish based dinner for him, but have no way to know if it needs seasoning, something else - because I won't taste it.

This looks like a winner to me - great flavors!
