Herb Crusted Salmon

Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe

4 (5 oz.) salmon fillets
5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
3⁄4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon dried thyme
10 tablespoons butter, divided
1 shallot, minced
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
5 tablespoons white wine, divided
1 cup half and half cream
white pepper

Place salmon in a shallow dish, and rub with 3 tablespoons lemon juice. Season the non skin side with lemon pepper, parsley, thyme. Set aside.

In a saucepan heat 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat, and saute shallot for 2 minutes until tender. Mix in remaining 2 tablespoons  lemon juice, vinegar, and 1/4 cup wine. Simmer until reduced by at least 1/2. Stir in half & half. Season sauce with salt, and white pepper to taste. Cook and stir until thickened. Whisk in 4 tablespoons butter. Set aside and keep warm.

Heat remaining 4 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place salmon in the skillet herb side down, and cook 1 to 2 minutes, until seared. Remove salmon and set aside herb side up. Deglaze the skillet with remaining 1 tablespoon wine, then mix in the cream sauce. Return salmon to the skillet herb side up, and cook 8 minutes in the sauce, or until easily flaked with a fork.
Serve salmon on plate with sauce, paired with steamed asparagus spears and mashed red potatoes.

The Herb Crusted Salmon Salad  at The Cheesecake Factory uses the  herb crusted salmon and is served cold on top of baby lettuces, tomato and vegetables tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette.
