1 pound  center-cut salmon fillet, skinned (see Tip) and cut into 4 portions
1 cup  dry white wine, divided
2 teaspoons  extra-virgin olive oil
1 large  shallot, minced
2 tablespoons  lemon juice
4 teaspoons  capers, rinsed
1/4 cup  reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 teaspoon  salt
1 tablespoon  chopped fresh dill
1. Place salmon in a large skillet. Add 1/2 cup wine and enough water to just cover the salmon. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to a simmer, turn the salmon over, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.
2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the remaining 1/2 cup wine; boil until slightly reduced, about 1 minute. Stir in lemon juice and capers; cook 1 minute more. Remove from the heat; stir in sour cream and salt. To serve, top the salmon with the sauce and garnish with dill.
Tip: How to skin a salmon fillet: Place skin-side down. Starting at the tail end, slip a long knife between the fish flesh and the skin, holding down firmly with your other hand. Gently push the blade along at a 30 degrees angle, separating the fillet from the skin without cutting through either.

This is an amazing dinner served with quinoa. We spice up the quinoa with garlic, onion, sundried tomatos. Adjustment...double the sauce.
