Ingredients 11

Ingredients

1/4 cup merlot or other dry red wine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
1 tbsp. heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
2 tsp. packed brown sugar
1-1/4 cups DOLE® Chef-Ready Cuts Diced Strawberries, thawed
8 oz. slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
5 (6 oz. each) salmon fillets with skin
as needed  olive oil
1/3 cup (optional) ripe olives, diced

Steps

STEP1

Direction

Preheat oven to 350 F.

STEP2
Ingredients

1/4 cup merlot or other dry red wine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup finely chopped shallots
1 tbsp. heavy cream
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed

Direction

Heat wine, vinegar and shallots in medium saucepan to boiling. Reduce heat; continue simmering 15 to 20 minutes or until liquid has reduced down to 1/4 cup. Stir in cream. Reduce temperature to low and start adding butter cubes, one or two at a time, whisking rapidly with a wire whisk.

STEP3
Ingredients

2 tsp. packed brown sugar
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
2/3 cup DOLE Chef-Ready Cuts Diced Strawberries, thawed and drained

Direction

As butter melts and incorporates, add more butter and keep whisking. When finished the sauce should be thick and smooth. Add brown sugar, salt and pepper, to taste. Add 2/3 cup strawberries just before serving over fish.

STEP4
Ingredients

8 oz. coarsely chopped slivered almonds
5 (6 oz. each) salmon fillets with skin
olive oil, as needed

Direction

Spread almonds in shallow dish. Season salmon with salt and pepper. Press fillets into nuts on flesh-side of fish only; nuts will stick to fish. In batches place salmon, nut-side down, into skillet with oil as needed; over medium heat, cook until nuts are lightly browned.

STEP5

Direction

Place fillets, nut-side up, on large baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake 5 to 7 minutes or until desired doneness.

STEP6
Ingredients

remaining 1 cup diced strawberries
1/3 cup diced ripe olives, optional

Direction

Serve wine-butter sauce over salmon and sprinkle with remaining 1 cup diced strawberries and olives.
