This was adapted from a recipe by a Washington coast restaurant. You can use Scotch or something like Jack Daniels, which I used.

Wow! This was great. I could not find raspberry vinegar, so I improvised and added a mixture of white vinegar and raspberry pecan dressing (amazing what you can do when you're desperate). Once I tasted it, I quickly cooked up 1/2 box of linguine and poured the sauce over the linguine, with the salmon on top. It was phenomenal! I did add more salt and garlic than the recipe called for. Thank you so much for this recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Dredge fillets in flour, to coat both sides.
  2. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil until hot. Brown fillets slightly on one side. Add salt and pepper.
  3. Turn fillets over and add garlic, shallot, mustard and brown sugar. Cook for a few seconds.
  4. Add vinegar. Fillet should be browned on second side now. With fillet still in pan, deglaze pan with whiskey. Add orange juice. Swirl pan to mix ingredients.
  5. Reduce sauce until it begins to thicken. Add cream and cook until heated.
  6. Place fillets on plates and spoon some sauce over each.
  7. Garnish with grated orange zest or chopped green onions, if desired.
