Salmon Piccata Recipe

Last week I shared a world class salmon burger recipe that I know was enjoyed by many of you. This week you are being treated to one of my favorites of all time; a salmon piccata recipe.  I love this one and usually add more capers then the recipe calls for.  My wife added some of her freestyle touches to this recipe when we had guests over who were pescatarians, and we have been eating it ever since.

 

Ingredients:  For one serving, we usually do this recipe with an entire fresh caught Kenai River sockeye salmon.

 

6 oz Kenai River sockeye salmon fillet (remove skin and cut or pick pin bones out of fillet)

1/2 cup or so of flour

2 Tbs sea salt

1 Tbs course black pepper

Half a stick of butter

2 Tbs chopped shallots

1 Tbs capers( I like a lot more)

1/4 cup wine (Chardonnay)

1 Lemon

2 Tbs cold butte

Pasta (I prefer Angel Hair)

Mix the flour and salt and pepper on a plate or bowl coat the salmon on both sides and shake off excess flour.  Heat up a good frying pan on med-hi heat and add salmon when pan is hot, cook until; both sides have started to brown.  Add the capers and shallots and cook until shallots are translucent.  Add fresh squeezed lemon juice from half the lemon and the white wine.  Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes.  The sauce will thicken slightly.

Reduce heat, remove salmon and put it on your plate with warm pasta (My wife likes to squeeze more lemon on her pasta). Add your cold butter to pan and let it melt while you stir the sauce until it looks smooth and creamy.  Pour sauce over salmon and pasta and enjoy.

If you come to Alaska, or if you live in Alaska and want to enjoy some quality time on the Kenai River and actually CATCH some fish, Jason's Guide Service can get you there.
I have fished the Kenai on my own, but I've never caught fish like I did on a charter with Jason's. Caleb was our guide and he was professional, thourgh, patient and an excellent teacher of all things fish. Did I mention we caught some HUGE FISH? The trip was epic, and we will definitely be back for more!

We had two great drift fishing trips down the Kenai River with Jason. He was straightforward about the probability of catching species based on all conditions and left the choice of adventure up to us. He demonstrated a depth of knowledge about the river, fish and wildlife behavior and lots of other questions about Alaska! You can tell that he loves and is an expert in what he does and where he lives. We had a great time catching rainbow trout, Dolly Varden char, and a King salmon watched by bald eagles lining the banks. Also loved seeing spawning Sockeye and the bull moose at the boat landing! We will definitely book with Jason again on our next trip to Alaska.

Caleb had us on the Trout even when they were a little hard to find! Always handy with a new lure or spot to try when things ran cold and we were right back on em. Great guide, great fishing. Don’t hesitate to book. Thanks so much!

Had a great time with my dad. Caleb was our guide and he was fantastic. Easy going and very knowledgeable when it came to the river, specific fish, where to fish, and how to fish. Absolutely recommend, wish we could have done a full day trip!

We live in Anchorage and have our own drift boat but still choose to fish with Jason or Caleb when hiring a guide on the upper or middle Kenai river. I always learn something from them! Highly recommended!
