Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

Try a fruity Sonoma Pinot Noir, a classic varietal for salmon.

Beer Pairings

The hops, aroma and bitterness with a refreshing finish of a Pilsner works well with salmon; the bitterness offers contrast with sweet reduction sauces.

TK Table Talk:

When you see a shooting star, do you make a wish?

What To Do:

1. Salmon may arrive slightly frozen. Thaw as needed.

2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with cooking spray.

7. Cook Vegetables: Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sugar snap peas, asparagus, shallot, ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and ¼ cup water. Cover and cook 3 minutes. Uncover and stir in remaining orange mixture and mint. Sauté 2 to 3 minutes longer or until sauce is syrupy and vegetables are crisp-tender.

To Serve: Divide salmon and vegetables evenly between two serving plates. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Pro Tip:

To get the most juice out of the orange, let it stand at room temperature before squeezing.
