Salmon with Morels in Cream Sauce

Morels are in season and I bought few at the store this weekend. Price does bite at $30 per pound! However, you don't need to buy many of them to make a nice dish. After doing a google search on recipes with morel mushrooms I came up with this creation last night. Here is the recipe.


2 pieces of salmon cooked my usual way (the post about it is here)
8-10 medium and large morel mushrooms, cleaned and chopped to taste
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 teaspoon of freshly chopped thyme
1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup of white wine
3/4 - 1 cup of chicken stock
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper


Pour olive oil in a small pan and on medium high heat saute shallot, thyme and morels for 3 minutes stirring. Deglaze with white wine and add chicken stock. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low. Let the chicken stock reduce and mushrooms to cook for about 10 - 12 minutes. Next add heavy whipping cream and stir well. I let it boil a little bit stirring frequently until I got desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste. To serve put salmon on a plate and pour morel sauce on top. I also had some elbow pasta to soak up that cream!
