Bronzed Alaska Salmon in a Butter-Wine Sauce

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 12 minutes
Servings: 4

4 Alaska Salmon steaks or fillets (4 to 6 oz. each), fresh, thawed or frozen
1 Tablespoon olive, canola, peanut or grapeseed oil
2 Tablespoons of your favorite seafood seasoning
¼ cup white wine or chicken broth
1 Tablespoon butter

Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.  Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.  Brush both sides of salmon with oil.  Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned.  Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.  

Turn salmon over and sprinkle with seafood seasoning.  Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium.  Cook for 2 minutes; add the wine and butter to pan.  Continue to cook, uncovered, an additional 4 to 6 minutes for frozen salmon OR 1 to 2 minutes for fresh/thawed fish.  Cook just until fish is opaque throughout and sauce is reduced.  Drizzle sauce over salmon when serving.
