“From Bon Appetit's February, 1994 issue...I have made this recipe SO many times and always with good results. One of my all-time favorites. I am not normally a fan of salmon due to the "fishy" taste...but this recipe changed my mind. The sauce is awesome--a friend asked if he could take the leftover sauce home and just eat it with a spoon by itself! Nice dish for entertaining but really simple if you just want to spoil your loved ones. :-) This was on a menu in Bon Appetit with a Potato, Tomato and Onion Gratin that I am also posting, which is equally as good. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. For sauce: Combine all sauce ingredients in a heavy medium saucepan. Simmer until very thick, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. (Can be prepared one day ahead; cover and refrigerate).
  2. For fish: Line large baking pan with foil. Arrange fish, skin side down, in a single layer on foil. Mix the butter, brown sugar, soy sauce, fresh lemon juice and dry white wine in a bowl. Pour over fish. Cover fish and refrigerate at least one hour and up to six hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Uncover fish and bake until just cooked through, basting occasionally with pan drippings, about 18 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, rewarm sauce over low heat, stirring constantly. Add 1 cup sour cream and whisk just until heated through; do not boil. Season sauce to taste with salt. Arrange salmon on platter. Serve, passing the sauce separately.
