    CookGordon's Note:

    Recipe is from the March/April 2001 issue of Cuisine. The salmon could stand on its own, or be paired with a Holandaise. The Champagne-Butter Sauce has plenty of lemon to cut the richness of the fish and still has a little sweetness from the champagne.

      To oven-steam, first fill a pan with 1" of hot water -- place the pan in the oven before adding the water to avoid sloshing it. Note: Be sure the pan is deep enough to hold about 1" of water without touching the fish. Preheat oven to 325.
    2. 2
      Position cooling rack over a baking sheet; spray with nonstick spray. Place prepared fillets skin side down, on the rack, 1/2" apart. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Place the rack on top of the pan in the oven: oven steam salmon 15-18 minutes, or until desired doneness is reached. Prepare the sauce while the fish steams.
    4. 4
      To test fillets for doneness, gently squeeze the sides -- they should spring back, not feel too soft or firm. And the color should be coral, not opaque.
