Salmon another way

Salmon is one of those meals that is quick and easy. I usually run by the store on the way home from work to pick up fresh salmon. A couple of fillets are quick and easy~ and fill us up with those healthy omega's.

This is a great salmon recipe... it would work with chicken too! The fennel and onions make it extra special. It is just perfect for two.

Salmon with Fennel
WhistleStop Marinade (optional)
2 tsp fennel seeds, crushed
1/4 cup butter
1 onion, sliced
1 fennel bulb sliced
2 Tbs olive oil
2 large salmon fillets
2 Tbs white wine
To start, marinade salmon in whistlestop marinade for 15-20 minutes. (you can substitute your favorite marinade... but it won't be nearly as good:-) )
In a skillet stir crushed fennel seeds over medium heat until warmed and fragrant. Remove seeds to a small bowl. Add butter, fennel and onions, saute until onions are transparent. Add 1/2 cup water, cover and cook fennel for 6-8 minutes until tender. Transfer fennel and onion to the bowl with the fennel seeds.
Add olive oil to the same skillet, cover and cook salmon for about 5 minutes on one side over medium head. Turn fillets, add wine and cook for another 3-5 minutes. As the salmon is done top with fennel and heat through.
Serve with brown rice and a nice salad. It can't get any easier than that!

Y'all enjoy,

Jerry~ You are right. Fennel and salmon are like peanut butter and jelly.
Barb~ Healthy and easy... a perfect meal.

Thanks for this recipe. I'm always looking for new salmon recipes because it's so healthy and I've never had fennel and salmon together.

I was confused by the comment you left on my blog. Help! :-)

Wow, this looks great. We are always looking for new ways to serve fish (the only meat I'll eat), and I think this may be a keeper. Thanks for the recipe.
