Preparation method

Combine the onion, garlic, wine and 2/3 of the basil in a small saucepan. After boiling the mixture, reduce the heat and leave on low heat for about 8 minutes. Strain the liquid and transfer to another pot. Add the remaining basil, cream, goat cheese and lemon zest and stir with a wire or fork until smooth.

Preheat the grill pan or grill.

Sprinkle the salmon fillets evenly with the s alt and pepper. Drizzle with olive oil and place in the pan/grill skin side down. Fry/grill on both sides for 3 to 5 minutes, turning the fish carefully. Remove the skin. Place on a plate and pour over the sauce just before serving.
