Salmon Steaks with Wine Sauce

READY IN: 11mins
Top Review by jenpalombi

When I first sampled this sauce, I thought that this would be a one star recipe - it seemed very bland. However, once I paired it with the fish, it was alright - the flavor was delicate and a decent compliment to the salmon. Still, if I'm looking to "wow" some dinner guests, there are better salmon dishes out there.
