recipe_ClifFamily_salmon.jpgBy Master Chef, Anna Callway of Clif Family Winery

It's wild salmon season! Salmon is my favorite fish - it's easy to prepare, good for you and lends itself to many wonderful preparations. I have tried cooking salmon many different ways, but the recipe below is an all-time favorite. Pair this meal with Clif Family Winery 2010 Rte Blanc Sauvignon Blanc.

This method yields a melt in your mouth texture and it is a medium rare finish ( slightly translucent in the center).
