I acquired this recipe about 15 years ago from a member of our local wine club who was recommending this unique entree to be served with Pedroncelli Sauvignon Blanc wine (California), the original recipe having come from Bayona (Restaurant) in the French Quarter of New Orleans. This is quite an elegant dish but is really not difficult to prepare – just make sure that you have everything portioned out and ready to use in advance and the cooking will go just fine. The dish serves four (I recommend some nice Basmati rice on the side and possibly some brussel sprouts steamed in lemon butter or, some fresh asparagus prepared in the same manner), but honestly, I can usually eat two salmon fillets myself, (I’m a big guy). This is one of those “special dinners” that you could serve to your spouse on an anniversary, etc., AS LONG AS S/HE LIKES SAUERKRAUT! It's amazing as to how nicely the salmon and the sauerkraut complement one another in this dish. I hope you enjoy the recipe and have fun making it.
