Course:Main Course


  • 4 fillets skinless, center-cut salmon
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 lemon ½ tsp lemon zest /1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tsp capers
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped


  • Season the salmon fillets with the cayenne and salt.
  • Set a nonstick skillet on medium heat, and cook the salmon for about 10 minutes, turning over halfway through. You should be able to pierce the center of each fillet easily with a knife to know they are done. Transfer to plate.
  • Grate lemon zest onto fish, and squeeze lemon juice into a cup.
  • Add the white wine and capers to the skillet, and set the heat to high. Boil for 2 minutes or until the liquid is reduced by half, consistently scraping browned bits from the pan to incorporate all that great flavor.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat. Stir in lemon juice and parsley.
  • Spoon the sauce over the salmon, serve, and enjoy!*
