Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon

One of Brownie's good friends recently took a nice long trip to Alaska and fished his heart out.  We were a little jealous, I'll admit :-)  But we did manage to be gifted a nice salmon filet from his trip!  Oregonians are pretty picky about their salmon, we know what we want.  Alaskan salmon!?  We were so excited to cook that beauty!!!!

So this is Brownie's Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon, caramelized leeks, asparagus, charred scallion in dill/sage/lemon clarified butter.  I could have eaten three of these plates!  The flavors were so rich and mingled so well .... it was beyond delicious.  We are so blessed!

We opened a bottle of Pine Ridge Henin Blanc & Viognier wine to have with this and they complimented one another pretty well.  I wouldn't say they were a match made in heaven, however.  I think the wine would have paired better with something a bit more spicy.
