DIRECTIONS

  • Whisk syrup and salt in small bowl until well combined.
  • Place salmon in a container just big enough to hold them in a single layer.
  • Pour syrup mixture over top, cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove salmon from the brine and place on a roasting rack.
  • Let it drain briefly; bake in a preheated 400F oven for 5- 7 minutes (depending on the thickness of the fish).
  • To judge doneness, squeeze the fish or prod with a thin-bladed knife.
  • The flesh should just begin to flake and will be moist and juicy inside.
  • Meanwhile, place Chardonnay, mustard and cream into a small pot and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 8- 10 minutes to allow liquid to reduce and sauce to thicken.
  • Reserve& keep hot while the salmon cooks.
  • Just before serving, add the chives and swirl to combine.
