3 tablespoons butter
1 onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
1 1/2 pounds salmon fillet, rinsed and patted dry, cut along the length into four pieces
salt and freshly ground black pepper
Heat the butter in a saucepan wide enough to accommodate the salmon fillets. When the butter starts to foam, add the onions and cook until they are translucent, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
Add the flour and stir until it is well blended. Pour in the wine and honey and cook, stirring constantly, until the flour butter mixture is blended in. Add the dill.
Sprinkle the salmon fillets with salt and pepper and lay them in the pan, skin side down. Bring the sauce to a simmer and continue simmering, covered, until the salmon flakes apart when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Occasionally scrape the bottom of the pan to prevent the fish from sticking. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasonings, if necessary.
The salmon tastes delicious over a bed of rice! Be sure to check out my other Harry Potter Recipes.
