Chuck's Easy Poached Salmon

Total Time
Prep 3 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is adapted from my father in law's recipe for poached salmon- it is absolutely simple, very low cal, and tastes great cold or warm. We like it cold with an aioli or a creamy dill sauce.


  1. Place lemon slices, dill and ginger in a foil pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  2. Place salmon on top.
  3. Add wine and then fill pan with water until the fish is completely covered.
  4. Cover with foil and poke knife holes all over the foil to allow steam to escape.
  5. Put in oven at 350 for approximately 25 minutes (cooking time depends on thickness of filet- if the fish flakes easily with a fork, then it's ready).
