Salmon on Dalandan Butter Sauce

This is a recipe of a seared salmon fillet with dalandan butter sauce. Actually this is the counterpart of salmon with lemon butter sauce and to make it more suited to the Pinoy taste the lemon is substituted with dalandan, a citrus similar to orange or ponkan but the skin is colored green like a lime and it is thinner compared to orange which you can easily peel off.

To cook salmon on dalandan butter sauce;  Heat oil in a nonstick pan. Season salmon fillet with salt and pepper. When pan is hot, cook fish for 3 minutes per side. Set aside when done. Pour dalandan juice and sugar in stainless steel saucepan. Cook over low heat until almost two tablespoons of juice is left. Add cream and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add cold butter, one cube at a time, stirring until it melts before adding another cube. Season to taste. Pour dalandan butter sauce over cooked salmon fillet and serve with your favorite stalks and vegetables, if desired.
