Cut the salmon into 6 equal serving pieces, wash, and pat dry on
paper towels. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high
heat. Sear the salmon on each side for 2-3 minutes, keeping the
center slightly rare since the fish will continue to cook after
it is taken from the pan. Remove the fish from the pan with a
slotted spatula and keep warm. Reduce the heat to low and add the
shallots and garlic to the pan. Saute, stirring frequently, for 5
Add the basil, parsley, wine, cream, lemon juice, pepper and salt
to the pan and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until
the mixture is reduced by half. Taste for seasoning, adding
pepper and salt as needed.

sauce around the salmon fillets.
NOTE: The fish can be prepared up to three hours in advance.
