Fresh salmon is something many of us from the northwest take for granted. It is caught fresh right on the rivers that we see from our homes. During the summer, salmon is a key part of many feasts whether it is cooked on the grill, in the oven, or smoked to perfection. Pinot noir and salmon have long enjoyed a balanced partnership. The acidity in Pinot Noir cuts through the fatty flesh of the Salmon and complements it perfectly. This is a simple and delicious salmon recipe to enjoy throughout your summer or anytime you break out some of that coveted Northwest salmon from your freezer.
