Poached Salmon with Mustard Sauce

I was fortunate recently to have a friend bring me some Salmon from Alaska. Oh yeah! I could not wait to cook these babies!  There are so many ways I enjoy Salmon, but because it is Summer and I am watching my waistline, I decided to go for a poach. I do believe blackened pan fried is my absolute favorite way to enjoy it. Baked is healthy too, but a poach in a little bit of white wine and Salmon just falls apart like butter. Here is an easy recipe that every one in my house enjoyed. Naturally gluten free! 

Gluten Free Poached Salmon with Mustard Sauce
adapted from Bon Appétit

2/3 cup dry white wine 

2 TBSP shallots chopped

4 6-ounce Salmon filets
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 
4 teaspoons Dijon mustard 
2 green onions, sliced on the bias 

Bring wine and shallots to simmer in heavy large skillet.

Add fish, cover and simmer until fish is just cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Transfer fish to plates. Tent with foil to keep warm. 
Add cream to skillet and bring to boil.

 Boil until reduced to sauce consistency, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. Mix in mustard.  

Spoon sauce over fish. Sprinkle with green onion.
