    A la Carte's Note:

    Something different to do with salmon, and really delicious! I think I got the idea for this recipe from Bon Appetit, and just changed a couple of the ingredients. If you don't like sour cream substitute heavy cream instead.

    1. 1
      Mix the sugar with the salt, chili, and ground corriander.
    2. 2
      Cut the salmon into 1" "fingers", and roll it in the sugar mixture to coat all sides.
    3. 3
      Melt the butter over medium heat. When bubbly, add the salmon and cook until crusty on the outside and just cooked inside. (Only about 4 minutes per side).
    4. 4
      Transfer the salmon to a plate. Add the wine to the pan and reduce slighly, then add the sour cream. Boil until the sauce thickens enough to coat a spoon. Make sure to scrape up all the brown bits from the pan.
    5. 5
      Spoon the sauce over the salmon and sprinkle over the green onions.

      This is excellent! I will definitely make this one again. It's quick, easy, and very tasty. The only change I made was to toss the green onions into the sauce to cook for a few minutes. Thanks for posting, it's a keeper!

      All we can say is WOW. This was an excellent recipe for salmon. The sauce was perfect. We added a 1/4 tsp of Cheasapeake bay seafood seasoning for some tanginess. This will be a favorite in our household.

      I have to say that though I wasn't terribly crazy about this recipe, my whole family LOVED IT!!! My husband said "PLEASE, PLEASE make this again!!!" My sons wolfed it down! Maybe if I make it again and slightly reduce the sugar and butter (as I found it a little too sweet and slightly greasy), I will find it to be a 5 star myself.
