Oven Baked Salmon with Lemon Beurre Blanc Sauce


I love any kind of salmon with a good sauce on it! I rarely cook it because my kids are fans but I'm thinking maybe I need to force it on them a little more and they just might come around. This recipe was delicious and I made it as a Mother's Day dinner for myself! Recipe adapted from Natasha's Kitchen.

3 lbs salmon
2 tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper
1.4 cup onion (finely diced)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup heavy cream
8 tbsp cold butter (cut into 1 tbsp pieces)

Heat oven to 425. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the salmon on the sheet pan, skin down. Brush with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes pr until the salmon is cooked through depending on it's thickness. In a small saucepan whisk together the onion, lemon juice and wine. Simmer over medium heat until it reduces and thickens. Whisk in the heavy cream and once it simmers reduce the heat to low and whisk in the butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Season with salt. Remove from heat and cover until fish is ready.  Plate the fish and top with the sauce.
