    Blue Cheese Sauce


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine the Italian seasoning, black pepper, paprika, salt, and cayenne. Season each piece of fish with the rub, pressing it in with your hands.
    3. 3
      Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the butter and oil. When the butter has melted, add the salmon and cook about 2 minutes per side. The rub will give it a nice color.
    4. 4
      Transfer the whole pan to the oven and cook for another 4 to 6 minutes.
    5. 5
      For the sauce:
    6. 6
      Place the white wine into a medium saucepan and reduce by half. Add the heavy cream and allow to reduce.
    7. 7
      Add the blue cheese and whisk until smooth. It will get nice and velvety.
    8. 8
      Serve on top of the salmon.

      Yummy! This was really great! I enjoyed it so much. Instead of frying my salmon, I put the butter and oil in my baking pan while I heated the oven up and then put the seasoned fish in the hot butter/oil. I only used 1 tsp of cayenne cause I'm a big sissy when it comes to hot stuff. For the yummy sauce, I added 1 tbsp of butter, 1 tbsp minced garlic, salt and a little paprika. I also used feta cheese instead of blue cheese because it's what I had on hand and I'm not too crazy about blue cheese. Thanks, Sharon for a delicious new way to make my salmon! Made for ZWT5 for the Kitchen Witches.

      I ate a similar dish at Paula's in Fort Wayne IN a few weeks ago and simply adored it! Never before had I thought to pair salmon with blue cheese, yet it is a match made in heaven. Next time, I would make the sauce and add just 1/2 the blue cheese then sprinkle the remaining on it and place it under the broiler briefly to melt and brown. Thanks for was awesome!
