Sockeye Salmon Steaks with Wine Sauce

  • Preparation Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook time: 12 minutes
  • Yield: 2 to 4 servings


  • 1 lb Sockeye Salmon Steaks
  • 1/2 cup Half & Half Light Cream
  • 2 tsp Cooking Oil
  • 1 large Egg Yolk, beaten
  • 2 Tbsp Dry White Wine
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 cluster Green Grapes, seedless (optional)
  • Dash White Pepper


Thaw sockeye salmon steaks, if frozen. Preheat a 6 1/2-inch microwave browning dish on 100% power for 3 minutes. Add cooking oil to the browning dish; swirl to coat the dish.

Place fresh or thawed salmon steaks in the browning dish. Microwave, covered, on 100% power for 30 seconds. Turn the salmon steaks and micro-cook, covered, on 50% power about 3 minutes or till the salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Let the salmon steaks stand, covered, while preparing the wine sauce. For the wine sauce, in a 4-cup measure microwave the butter or margarine, uncovered, on 100% of power for 45 seconds to 1 minute or till melted. Stir in the cornstarch and white pepper.

Stir in light cream. Microwave, uncovered, on 100% power for 2 to 3 minutes or till mixture is thickened and bubbly, stirring every minute. Stir in half of the hot cream mixture into the beaten egg yolk. Return all to the 4-cup measure.

Microwave, uncovered, on 50% of power for 1 minute, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir till mixture is smooth. Stir in dry white wine. Transfer the sockeye steaks to a serving platter. Spoon the wine sauce atop. Garnish with seedless green grapes, if desired.
