  • Cook time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings


  • 1 lb Salmon Fillets
  • 2 Tbsp Bacon Drippings
  • 6 Tbsp Butter
  • 1 Garlic Clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp Thyme
  • 1 tsp Tarragon
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 cup Dry White Wine


Trim fillets to 1 1/2'' pieces with uniform thickness. In frying pan, slowly cook 1-2 strips of bacon, or enough to yield 2 tablespoons drippings. Remove bacon and use for another dish. Saute; the salmon in the bacon drippings over medium heat, turning gently. Remove to a baking dish and keep warm. Deglaze pan with a little of the wine and scrape the residue from the pan over the fish.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the garlic and spices. Cook, stirring over medium low heat, for 2-3 minutes to extract the flavors. Remove from heat and add the wine and lemon juice. Pour this sauce over the fish.

Bake at 400°F degrees for 10 minutes. Serve over your favorite rice, spooning pan juices over all. Garnish with lemon wedges and finely chopped parsley.
