Recipe Notes

Chef Tips: Making great Salmon Beurre Blanc

Ingredients are important when making this recipe. If you use the best ingredients then your result will turn out for the best.  Although most recipes for Beurre Blanc do not call for mushroom, I add them to increase the umami flavor in the sauce. Be sure to cook them on the side in another frying pan and strain them well before putting into the sauce otherwise the mushroom is going to bleed its gray matter into your sauce and your sauce will be gray.

There's a difference between the various types of salmon, be sure to adapt this recipe to the type of salmon that you are cooking. As a rule of thumb, the firmer the fish is the less time required to cook.

Serving Size = 4oz of salmon
