We get some amazing salmon in Australia, and in the Margaret River region we are passionate about experimenting with food and wine pairings.
Rich, oily fish like salmon pair great with full-bodied white wines like Chardonnay…take our word for it! Our family loves Salmon, nearly as much as we love our Chardonnay, so the below recipe is a favourite of ours for a mid-week dinner and so easy to whip up.
This is a very simple but delicious way to prepare fresh salmon using just a few ingredients from your pantry. Pair together with our 2013 Jarvis Estate Chardonnay.
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon salt 4
(6 ounce) salmon
2 tablespoons butter
4 lemon wedges
Stir together the garlic powder, basil, and salt in a small bowl; rub in equal amounts onto the salmon fillets.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook the salmon in the butter until browned and flaky, about 5 minutes per side. Serve each piece of salmon with a lemon wedge.
