There are two things I don’t hate about living on the Eastern Shore. Well there’s more than that but these are my favorite two: fresh produce and seafood. There hasn’t been any place I’ve visited that could compare.
Fresh peaches are Oh Em Gee amazing and I just had to do something with the ones I had. What I came up with was this Peach Moscato Salmon, or drunken peach salmon, whatever you want to call it is fine by me. It all started with a bottle of Pink Moscato and fresh peaches.
I pitted and cored two peaches and put them in a preheated pan. I poured Pink Moscato over the peaches, making sure the halves were filled.
I let the peaches and wine cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Then I sliced the peach halves into smaller wedges and turned the heat up to medium high. I let it come to a boil for 2 minutes then reduced the heat back to medium.
I added the salmon (which i seasoned lightly with salt and pepper) to the pan and covered it to let it steam for about 6 minutes.
Salmon should be cooked to 145º internally.
This is what happened.
After that it was just putting the salmon on a plate, topping with the thickened sauce and some peach wedges. Then it’s time to enjoy the tender, flaky goodness that is Peach Moscato Salmon!
The sauce is enough for 2 decent size salmon fillets and can be doubled easily. Do you think you would enjoy this peach moscato salmon?
