Salmon Mugnier
About: This family recipe, courtesy of Chef Gino Sena, is a classic example of the simple yet elegant northern Italian fare served at La Famiglia. The philosophy behind such straightforward yet delicious fare is that the fresh, quality ingredients should showcase themselves. The fish and the use of lemon and olive oil prove staples of the Mediterranean diet, while the addition of butter adds a bit of dining opulence, making it an extraordinary dish that is still practical for making and enjoying at home. Because this recipe can just as easily be made for one or for five people, use it for effortless yet impressive entertaining, or just to entertain yourself.
