Lemon Butter Herbed Salmon

Cheese Blintz

Lemon Butter Herbed Salmon

(Dairy Yields 6 servings)

6 (6-ounce) salmon

½ cup cornstarch

1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon lemon pepper, divided

2 Tablespoons canola oil

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons flour

1½ cups white wine

1 fresh lemon, juiced

• kosher salt, to taste

small handful fresh parsley finely chopped.


1.     In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and 1 tablespoon lemon pepper.

2.     Coat fish in the cornstarch mixture. Set aside.

3.     In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; working in batches if necessary, add fish. Cook for 3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Place the fish into an ovenproof dish; set aside.

4.     Preheat oven to 350°F.

5.     Prepare the sauce: Over moderate heat, in the same saucepan, melt butter; then add flour to make a roux, stirring constantly until it thickens. The sauce will get thicker as it gets closer to boiling point.

6.     Add white wine and lemon juice; add 1 teaspoon lemon pepper and salt to taste.

7.     Stir constantly until the sauce thickens; stir in the fresh parsley.

8.     Pour sauce over fish; bake for 20 minutes, uncovered.

Notes: Roux is created by cooking wheat flour with oil or butter. It is the thickening agent used when making sauces.


To tell if fish is done, use a fork to flake the fish in the thickest part. If it flakes easily, it’s ready.

You can also use striped bass, cod, and Nile perch in this recipe.
