This dish is simple, moist and delicious. You may substitute lemon juice for the wine and omit the garlic if you wish.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 pounds salmon fillets, cut into 4 pieces
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 1/2 teaspoons dried parsley

Heat wine and water over medium high heat in a large non-stick skillet for 5 minutes.
