Pan-fried Salmon in White Wine Sauce

Argh ... This photo looks even more pathetic here, but it was the only shot I managed from my handphone camera. Cammy's battery was totally juiced. Sigh ...

I had been excited to share this dish, but looking that the photo above, all the wind left me.

Suffice to say that:
(a) I was inspired to try this dish after numerous dinners at Al Forno, which was the oven roasted version;
(b) it was a simple to prepare but tasted elegant and delicious; and
(c) it will be a good crowd impressing dish.
