I got this from Recipe Goldmine under Valetines Menu's. I haven't tried it yet but it looks easy and elegant!

We didn't like this. We love salmon, we love champagne, just not together. I followed directions exactly and found that it was too much of the same strange flavor and got it got very boring. I feel this might be good in tiny amounts on crackers with cream cheese and chives as an appetizer for guests?

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove any skin or bones from Salmon.
  2. Season Alaska salmon steaks/fillets lightly with salt and pepper. Place in a pan just large enough to hold the salmon in 1 layer. Add the champagne, lemon juice and just enough water to cover the fish.
  3. Remove the fish and bring the liquid to a boil.
  4. Return the salmon steaks/fillets to the pan. Top each with an onion slice, capers,and tarragon sprig. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover pan with foil and poach at no more than a simmer for 6 to 10 minutes (depending on the thickness of the salmon).
  5. Remove salmon steaks/fillets from the liquid and place on 4 warm serving plates. Top each piece of fish with 1 ounce of the liquid top with olives, capers and onions.
