Ingredients: (serves 1)

  • 1 filet of salmon
  • 3-4 fresh shrimp, pealed
  • 2 slices of Brie cheese (1/2-inch thick, enough to cover the salmon)
  • ½ clove of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Season salmon and shrimp with salt and pepper. In nonstick pan, melt butter over medium heat and sauté garlic. Cook salmon in garlic butter for 2 minutes on each side. Set aside in a baking dish. Remove skin from salmon and discard. Deglaze pan by adding honey and lemon juice. Immediately add the shrimp and cook for about 1 minute. Pour liquid over the salmon and place the shrimp on top of salmon. Cover the salmon and shrimp with the slices of Brie cheese. Put in oven for 10 minutes, or until the Brie begins to melt. Remove and serve with wild rice pilaf and vegetable medley of your choice.

  • Fr. Leo, hello! I don’t know if you’ll remember me or not — I met you at the 2003 NACHE conference in VA where you gave a talk. A few months later our family ran into yours while visiting Orvieto. I am so thrilled that you are blogging (and about food too!) and that you have a show and book coming out. My kids all look forward to reading/watching more.

    God bless and cheers. Remember, the Orvieto white wines are superb!
