For this month’s healthy recipe, I wanted to share a delicious salmon dish I have been recently cooking.  Salmon has many health benefits and click here for an informative article as to why you should incorporate more into your diet.

Please enjoy – this is a quick and easy weeknight dinner staple that feeds 2!


  • 1/2 – 3/4 lb. salmon filet, skinned

  • 1 T butter
  • 1/2 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1/4 cup Chardonnay
  • 1/2 t fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 T shallots, minced
  • 1 T maple syrup


  • In a shallow bowl, combine flour, salt, and pepper.  Dredge salmon in the flour mixture and shake off excess.
  • In a skillet, melt butter over medium heat.
  • Add salmon and saute for 1 to 2 minutes on each side.
  • Remove salmon from the pan.
  • Add orange juice, Chardonnay, rosemary, and shallots to the pan.  Cook until the liquid boils and is reduced by half.  About 3 minutes.
