FORKS&CORKS

Ingredients:

  • 4 (6- to 7-oz) center-cut pieces salmon fillet with skin (1 1/4 inches thick), any pin bones removed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped shallots
  • 2 large Belgian endives (1/2 lb total), quartered lengthwise, cored, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preparation:

Preheat broiler. Line rack of a broiler pan with foil, then lightly oil foil. Pat salmon dry, then arrange, skin sides down, on broiler pan. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper, then broil 4 to 5 inches from heat until almost cooked through, about 6 minutes. Keep warm, loosely covered with foil (fish will cook through from residual heat).

Meanwhile, heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then saut shallots, stirring, 1 minute. Add endives and saut stirring, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine and boil over high heat, stirring, until liquid is reduced to 1 tablespoon, about 1 minute.

Add cream and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper and boil, stirring occasionally, until liquid is thickened and reduced by half, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in dill, lemon juice, and salt to taste. Serve salmon with sauce.
