How to Make Delicious Drunken Braised Salmon at Home?

Q: Can I use another type of fish for this recipe?
A: Yes, you can substitute salmon with other firm-fleshed fish, but the unique flavor of salmon works best with this preparation.

Q: What if I don’t have red shallots?
A: You can use yellow onions as a substitute, but red shallots provide a sweeter, more delicate flavor.

Q: Is it necessary to marinate the salmon for 30 minutes?
A: Marinating for 30 minutes allows the flavors to infuse into the salmon, but if short on time, a minimum of 15 minutes can still yield good results.
