Salmon is a versatile, ultra heart-healthy superfood, and its preparation possibilities are endless. Here, a skinless roasted fillet creates a simple but swanky dinner when paired with Steamed Potatoes with Thyme and Sauteed Mixed Mushrooms.


  • 1 large skinless salmon fillet (1 ½ pounds)

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup dry white wine

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place salmon on a rimmed baking sheet; season with salt. Roast until opaque throughout, about 15 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium. Add flour, and cook, whisking, 1 minute. Add wine, and bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer, and cook until liquid is reduced by half, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in chives; season with salt and pepper. With a fork, gently break salmon into large chunks, and serve topped with white-wine sauce.
