Salmon with White Wine, Lemon and Garlic

The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada recommends that adults consume fish, especially fatty fish such as salmon, at least twice a week. Salmon is not only packed with heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, it also leads the pack when it comes to vitamin D. 

Salmon with White Wine, Lemon and Garlic


Quantity Ingredients
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/4 cup (50 ml) white wine
1/4 cup (50 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
4 4-oz (120 g) salmon fillets

lemon wedges, as garnish


In a shallow dish, combine garlic, white wine and lemon juice. Place salmon, skin side up, in dish. Set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.

Heat oil in a skillet over high heat. Add salmon, skin side up, and marinade to the skillet. Cover, and reduce heat to medium.  Continue to cook for 10 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice, until fish is cooked through and flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Remove from heat.

Drizzle salmon with any remaining sauce in pan; serve hot.  Garnish with a lemon wedge if desired.
