A Nice Piece of Fish

Wild Alaskan salmon is lightly seasoned with fine sea salt and freshly-ground black pepper, then quickly seared in butter and olive oil.  Minced shallots are added to the pan along with fresh dill, white wine and a teaspoon of the liquor from a jar of preserved lemons.  A knob of cold butter is whisked in at the end, then the sauce is poured back over the salmon.  Served with a small salad of winter cress, dandelion greens, slivered radishes, preserved lemon peel, champagne vinegar and raw olive oil.  The flavors are clean, fresh and distinct..
