  1. Finely mince 2 cloves of garlic, finely dice 1/2 of an onion and season four 4 oz fillets of fresh salmon with sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper

  2. Heat a nonstick fry pan with a medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil, after heating the oil for 1 minute add the salmon fillets into the pan seasoned side down, after 3 minutes flip the salmon (the thickness of my fillets where 3/4 inch thick), after a total cooking time of 6 minutes remove the salmon from the pan and transfer to a dish

  3. Using the same pan with the same heat add the diced onions and minced garlic into the pan, mix around with the oil making sure to scrape up anything that was left over from the salmon, after 1 to 2 minutes add in 1/2 tsp of sweet smoked paprika and mix it all together, once it´s all mixed add in a 1/4 cup of white wine and mix together, after 1 minute add in 3/4 cup of canned tomato sauce and season with sea salt & black pepper, mix together until well combined and lower the fire to a low-medium heat

  4. After simmering the sauce for 4 to 5 minutes add the the salmon fillets back into the pan and heat through for 2 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and serve directly from the pan, garnish each salmon fillet with fresh lemon slices and a sprinkle of fresh parsley, enjoy!
