This is a very easy recipe to make and is definitely company worthy and makes for an elegant dish. We love salmon on our house and I am always looking for new ways to prepare it. I used Chivas Regal whiskey as this is what was in the cupboard but I have also made this with Crown Royal which I love, but I am sure this would also work well with any other whiskey. I served ours over wild rice with mushrooms and broccoli. I also topped it with some green beans and prawns to make for a pretty presentation.

1. Season salmon fillets with salt and pepper.

2. In a pan, heat oil, add fillets skin side down, cook both sides until browned and cooked through. Approx 3-6 Min’s a side depending on thickness. Mine were quite thick I cooked mine 5 a side.

While fillets are cooking make sauce.

2. Add vinegar and whiskey, cook for a couple of minutes, add stock granules and orange juice, stir to combine.

3. Add cream, mix a little water with the cornflour and add to sauce, stir until heated through and sauce thickens.

To serve: Place salmon on plate and drizzle sauce over sprinkle with parsley if desired.
