1/1 Photo of Dr. Andrew Weil’s Easy Poached Salmon
This recipe is from Dr. Andrew Weil’s book, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health. When I made this I used too small a pan to take all the vegetables and the salmon, so the tops of my salmon were not covered in liquid; this worked for us because DH is a sashimi connoisseur so he went for the least done piece. I also was surprised to discard the vegetables! I nibbled on the delicious carrot slices, though! And yes, this is an easy dish and the salmon came out just great! :)
