Recipes - Salmon with a Caper Cream Sauce


Salmon with a Caper Cream Sauce

  • 4 salmon filets
  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 Tbsp butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Tbsp capers
  • salt and pepper
  • garlic butter

Add the cream to a pot and reduce by half over high heat. Reduce the heat and add the lemon juice and butter so that the butter melts without letting the mixture boil (or your sauce will separate). Once the butter is melted, add the capers, salt, and pepper to taste.

Brush the salmon with melted garlic butter and grill on both sides until the salmon is slightly pink inside. Pour the sauce over the top and enjoy.



About Holly's Hill Vineyards

Nestled in the beautiful Sierra Foothills in El Dorado County and Pleasant Valley, Holly's Hill Vineyards specializes in producing Rhone varietal wines. In fact, the estate vineyards are composed entirely of Rhone varieties including Viognier, Roussanne, Grenache, Mourvedre, Syrah, and Counoise. The winery produces varietal wines, a dry Rosé, and red and white blends. The enthusiasm for Rhone varieties at Holly's Hill started when Tom and Holly Cooper (owners) shared their first bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape on their honeymoon. It's been a love affair ever since.
