    HeatherFeather's Note:

    This recipe uses a French herb blend (herbes de Provence), which contains lavender. Adapted from a Penzey's recipe. I haven't tried this yet. The amount of sugar needed will vary with the type of wine you use - a sweeter wine will require less sugar. Very nice choice for a romantic dinner.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large enough skillet to hold the salmon pieces snugly, but without touching, add all ingredients except the salmon.
    2. 2
      Heat the liquid for about 20 minutes, bringing it slowly to just below the boiling point (this is to allow the herbs to steep); poaching liquid should be fairly sweet.
    3. 3
      Set the fish pieces skin sides upward into the hot poaching liquid.
    4. 4
      If there is not enough liquid to cover the fish, add a bit more water& water in even proportions.
    5. 5
      Cook 2-3 minutes, at which point you should be able to use a tongs to peel off the skins easily.
    6. 6
      Continue poaching fish 15-20 minutes at high enough heat to keep the water just under a boil, or until fish is cooked to your liking (it should just start to flake when poked with a fork when ready).
    7. 7
      Drain and serve garnished with some sprigs of fresh culinary lavender or a sprinkling of any fresh herbs you prefer.

      I used Troys Herbs de Provence #18565 and Heathers Delish Roasting Salt Blend for Veggies or Meats #93833 and my lavender sugar. I used half the fish and kept the rest of the ingredients as is. I poached the fish just at a simmer for 15 minutes. Very low and slow. I garnished with fresh lavender and drizzled olive oil on the salmon. Thanks Heather!
