Salmon, Poached in White Wine w/Orange Slices (P, KLP, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 2

2 fillets of salmon, approximately 3/4 pound each
4 cloves of garlic, chopped fine
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup white cooking wine
1/2 cup water
1 orange with peel, sliced thin, approximately 7 slices
2 tbsp. margarine
2 fresh basil leaves, torn or 1 tsp. dry basil
Salt, to taste
Pepper, to taste
Pinch or two of dry dill

Before beginning, generously pour some olive oil into a baking dish or large disposable foil pan. Add the wine and water. Wash the salmon fillets, pat dry with paper towel. Set the salmon in the liquids and marinate for approximately 1 hour, turning every so often.

In large skillet, melt the margarine, sauté the onions slightly, until translucent. Add garlic and sauté for only 1 minute, stirring frequently. Add the basil, salt and pepper.

Add the skillet mixture to the liquids and salmon and baste all together. Layer the orange slices over the salmon and sprinkle a small amount of dill on top. Cover with foil. Bake in 375° oven for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve over rice or with side of pasta.

Poster's Notes:
For the garlic, you can use less, depending on your taste buds.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
