Poached Salmon With Dill-Yogurt Sauce

READY IN: 30mins

This 30 minute meal is easily prepared. Do not remove the skin before poaching or the fish might fall apart during the cooking process. The vegetables in the pot can be served alongside the fish or discarded. Buttered egg noodles with a little chopped parsley are good, on the side. And, as I suggest with all my recipes which call for wine, use a good, drinkable wine.

This had a nice flavor but the fish was a little tough. My daughter really enjoyed the sauce.
