    4-6 wild salmon filets

    1 tbsp butter or oil

    Fresh minced cilantro

    1/4 c chardonnay (Marinade)

    1/4 c light sodium soy sauce (Marinade)

    1/4 c Mirin (Japanese sweet wine)

    1/2 shallot, peeled and thinly sliced (Marinade)

    1 tbsp grated fresh ginger (skin removed) (Marinade)

    1 tbsp sugar (Marinade)

    1 tbsp butter or oil (Marinade)

    1. Combine marinade ingredients and bring to a boil in a saucepan. Simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Take salmon filets and add to the cooled marinade for 30 minutes at room temperature.
