Seared Salmon with a Mushroom Wine Sauce

Salmon.... it's the BEST! Of course you know it's high in protein, good fats, omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins calcium and magnesium! But, did you know it is also a great source of Vitamin D? It's one of the few food sources that can actually claim that! So... with all this rain, cloudy and stormy weather, and lack of sun, a nice Salmon, Paleo meal, is not just totally tasty... it is something we all could really use about now!!! Tonight was a little bit of sunshine right on the dinner plate! Hope you enjoy! :-)

1 ~9oz Salmon fillet
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 C mushrooms, chopped
2 T fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 C shallots, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 C white wine
1/2 C chicken broth (low sodium)
1 T cold water
2 tsp arrowroot powder
ground black pepper
garlic powder

Heat oil in a skillet on med-hi heat. Season salmon fillets with pepper and garlic powder. Sear fish for about 3-5 minutes on each side, cover and keep on low temperature.
Meanwhile, in a sauce pan, saute onions, mushrooms, garlic, and parsley in a tsp of olive oil. When onions are tender, add chicken broth, wine. Combine arrowroot powder and water together. Whisk into the broth-wine mixture. Cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Pour sauce over salmon. Serves two! Approximate Zone blocks: 3F, 3P, 1/2C
I served with steamed broccoli and a side salad to balance blocks!

Ooh... that looks delish! Very nicely done. Pretty hard to beat a perfectly made piece of salmon.
