SALMON WITH BASIL CREAM SAUCE

2 lbs. salmon fillets
1 1/2 T unsalted butter
3 shallots, peeled and minced
1 clove garlic, peeled and minced
1 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
3/4 cup dry white wine
1/3 cup light cream
1 T freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 t freshly ground white pepper
1/4 t salt, or to taste

Cut the salmon into 6 equal serving pieces, wash and pat dry on
paper towels. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high
heat. Sear the salmon on each side for about 2 to 3 minutes,
keeping the center slightly rare since the fish will continue to
cook after it is taken from the pan. Remove the fish from the pan
with a slotted spatula and keep warm. Reduce the heat to low and
add the shollots and garlic to the pan. Saute, stirring frquently,
for 5 minutes.

Add the basil, parsley, wine, cream, lemon juice, pepper and salt
to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until
the mixture is reduced by half. Taste for seasoning, adding pepper
and salt as needed.

To serve, reheat the fish slightly in the sauce and then serve the
sauce around the salmon fillets.

NOTE: The fish can be prepared up to three hours in advance.
Reheat the fish in the sauce over low heat, uncovered, for 10
minutes.

Serves 6.
