Fancy Citrus Celebration Salmon

This is really good and really easy to make! The recipe is flexible, feel free to modify as you wish. If you don't have wine or champagne, substitute one or the other or broth or any other liquid that you think would add flavor. And if you want to cut it in half that's fine too, just adjust.


1 whole salmon without skin, cut into portions about 4 oz each
3 small or 2 large lemons, cut into thin slices
1 large or 2 small oranges, cut into thin slices

1/2 c sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
3 extra tablespoons of oil from the tomatoes or olive oil
3/4 c champagne
3/4 c white wine
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 T dill

salt and cracked pepper

Grease a 9x13" baking dish with olive oil or cooking spray. Line the bottom with sliced citrus. Its ok if you have a double layer. Salt and pepper the salmon and lay out over the citrus.



Mix the sun-dried tomatoes, oil, wine, champagne, garlic, and dill together. Dump over salmon.

Bake at 375 for 25-27 minutes till salmon just flakes. Great served with Tyler Florence's Ultimate Potato Au Gratin, and steamed asparagus with Crazy Citrus Vinaigrette.
