In my family, it is a tradition for my mom, sister and I to make Mother’s Day all about celebrating each other. We spend the day together shopping and getting pedicures, but then I take them back to my house for an evening of laughter, fun, good food and most importantly good drinks. You better believe I’m prepped and ready to go with JaM Cellars Butter Chardonnay!
JaM Cellars makes three easy-to-love, everyday California wines Butter Chardonnay, JaM Cabernet and Toast Sparkling. Something for everyone! Your beautiful mama is going to feel so spoiled!
Butter Chardonnay is rich, bold and luscious. Made in the tradition of quality Californian winemaking, the grapes selected are juicy, ripe and bursting with flavor. The easy-to-love Chardonnay is cold fermented to a lush creaminess and aged with a unique blend of oak. Butter brims with stone fruit and baked-lemon notes and has a lovely, long, vanilla finish. Simply put, it melts in your mouth!
This blackened salmon with strawberry avocado salsa, paired with Butter is one of those dishes everyone will love – it’s as flavorful as it is colorful. It’s:

From fridge to table in under 20 minutes, this dish is healthy, colorful and full of flavor.
- 2 pounds fresh (or if frozen, thawed) salmon, about 4 fillets (wild-caught is best)
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 tablespoon olive or avocado oil
- 8 ounces strawberries , diced
- 1/2 small red onion , diced
- 2 jalapeño chile peppers , seeded and diced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 1 large avocado , peeled, seeded and diced
- Juice of 1 lime
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Mix all seasonings, for the salmon, in a small bowl. Press seasoning into salmon and gently rub the seasoning to completely coat the salmon
Heat a large stainless steel or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot add the oil. When pan is hot, add the salmon, flesh side down and cook for 3-5 minutes with lid on the pan. Flip the salmon and cook fish all the way through (uncovered), about 5 more minutes. You can check the middle of the salmon with a fork to make sure it is heated and beginning to flake.
- While salmon is cooking, prepare strawberry avocado salsa by simply mixing all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
Plate salmon (skin removed) and top with plenty of strawberry avocado salsa.
