    Chef #814001's Note:

    Flaky, buttery, cool poached salmon is perfect for a warm weather dinner party. A large fillet makes an elegant presentation, and it can be prepared ahead of time. The memon mint tzatziki balances the salmon's richness with a refreshing lightness.

      Put the wine, water, bay leaves, parsley and one of the sliced lemons in a large skillet and bring to a simmer. Add the salmon skin side down. Add more water if necessary to cover the fillet. Cover the skillet and simmer over low heat until the fish is just cooked through, about 10 minutes per inch thickness. With two large spatulas carefully transfer the fish to a plate, cover it and let it cool. Transfer to the refrigerator to chill completely- about 3 hours.

      Once chilled, remove the skin from the salmon. Uncover the fish, place a clean plate or baking sheet on top and flip the two over to the fish is skin side up on the clean plate. Peel the skin from the fillet and scrape away any discolored flesh. Flip the fish again right side up onto a serving plate. Garnish with the scallion greens and the remaining lemon slices.
