Pinot Noir Glazed Salmon #SundaySupper

Pinot Noir Glazed Salmon would have been a hit with my Dad. Meaty fish with a glass of red wine for dinner. Maybe some pasta first of course.
My Dad was technically first generation Italian. He was born in United States territorial waters in 1909, on a ship about 100 miles off shore of New York.
I don’t have a lot of memories about my Dad, but I do remember that he had a glass of red wine with dinner. He always stopped home for a cooked lunch and he’d hurry back to work. Dinnertime was different. We sat at the table, my Dad, Mom and me.
We talked and ate. After dinner Dad had his cigar and then we’d watch some TV before bed time.

This week Gallo Family Vineyards is joining us around the table in celebrating those special men in our lives this Father’s Day. Dads, Grand Dads, Step Dads and all those individuals that served as father figures and helped shape our lives.

The featured Gallo wines for this week’s Sunday Supper are Pinot Noir and Café Zinfandel.
You can find out more about these great tasting wines at Gallo’s Website:

Pinot Noir

Café Zinfandel

I chose Gallo Family Vineyard’s Pinot Noir for my salmon glaze. Gallo Pinot Noir is a medium bodied wine provides a smooth and light finish with aromas of cherry and sweet fruit flavors. This wine’s ripe berry and subtle earthy flavors stand up to meaty fish like salmon.

Pinot Noir, red raspberries, dark brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and a hint of cinnamon were reduced into this deep purple glaze. Isn’t it a gorgeous color?

For a smooth glaze, strain out the raspberry seeds.

Bake your salmon at 350 for about 20 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145.
