Preparation 15 minutes
Cooking time 20 minutes
Servings 4


  • 625 g (1 1/4 lb) fresh salmon fillets, skinless
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter
  • 250 ml (1 cup) white wine
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 250 ml (1 cup) 35% cooking cream
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) Dijon mustard

  3. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Pour in half the white wine.
  5. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets.
  6. Meanwhile, melt the remaining butter in a small saucepan.
  7. Add the green onion and cook for 2 to 3 minutes over low heat (without colouring). 
  8. Pour in the rest of the white wine. Reduce by half over medium heat.
  9. Add the cream and mustard. Season with salt and pepper.
  10. Lower the heat and gently reduce until the texture is even.
