Faroe Island Salmon Fillet with Leeks
Course: Main Course
Keyword: salmon, seafood
Servings: 2 people
- 2 8-oz Faroe Island salmon fillets
- 2 leeks halved lengthwise, washed thoroughly and thinly sliced
- ½ cup parsley chopped
- 3 T olive oil
- 1 lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
Place the salmon fillets in a nonstick oven-safe baking dish, skin side up. Lightly salt and pepper the salmon, then sprinkle with parsley and top off with the leeks or ramps. Drizzle with the olive oil and squeeze the juice of half of the lemon on top.
Bake for about 20 minutes, or until just firm to touch. The leeks on top should have softened and nicely browned. Serve each salmon fillet with wedges cut from the remaining lemon.
Wine pairing: My favorite with salmon is a Pinot Noir. If that is not your choice, go with a big and rich Chardonnay.
