Ingredients

  • 4

    (6-ounce) salmon fillets

  • Olive oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1

    cup fresh basil

  • 1/2

    cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1

    garlic clove

  • 2

    teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Drizzle salmon with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Set aside 10 minutes to absorb flavor. Meanwhile, combine basil, 1/2 cup olive oil, and remaining ingredients in a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, and set aside. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté salmon 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until desired degree of doneness. Place on serving plates. In the warm skillet, heat reserved basil sauce, and pour over salmon. Perfect Pairing: California lifestyle expert Susie Coelho recommends Meridian Pinot Noir for the Salmon with Basil Sauce. A hint of lemon means the recipe would work equally well with Meridian's Chardonnay. Another option is Meridian Sauvignon Blanc. Its bright, sunny quality matches the acidity of the tomatoes.
