I didn't take a picture this time... But I made a salmon in a papillote, with a leek and vermouth cream sauce. Great. Had some leftovers that turned into a great pasta sauce (with green peas), the day after.

To make the leek and vermouth cream sauce, I softened the leeks in butter, added the vermouth, let it simmer for a while, added equal pats of chicken broth and cream and let it reduce to half. Then I poured this sauce over the raw salmon fillets, in aluminum foil, closed the papillote and baked for 20 minutes at 400 F.

Here's one that appealed to me for a light, healthy, summer dish - that's on my 'to do' list.

I have to admit I'm a bit fish shy now with fresh salmon. I tried to fix it once several years ago and I didn't care for it. I can't recall the recipe but all the ingredients that went into it sounded amazing so I figured it had to be really good.

So ultimtely the only time we eat salmon is when I make good ole' fashioned salmon patties.......something I grew up on so its comfort in a patty.
