Pan Roasted Salmon with Barbecue Beurre Blanc

This Valentine’s Day, my hubby surprised me by cooking a delicious new recipe for salmon, and although an inspired recipe, I just had to share the dish.  The flavor and texture of the fish was amazing and pan roasted salmon has quickly become one of our favorite methods to prepare salmon.  The side dishes were a caramelized onion and Brussels sprouts, and brown rice quinoa with minced garlic.
