Poached Salmon With Spinach and Cheese

This is a recipe from Jyl Steinback's "Supermarket Gourmet Cookbook" that I received from Studentchef in the Spring 2009 Cookbook Swap. Although the recipe calls for salmon, I think that it would probably work well with cod or any firm white fish. The recipe also includes spinach, one of my children's favorite vegetables so it is tasty and healthy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine water, wine, bay leaf and green onion in a large skillet.
  2. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Carefully add fish and return to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Remove fish and pat dry.
  5. Preheat broiler on high heat. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  6. Sprinkle spinach with nutmeg and mix lightly. Arrange fish on baking sheet, top with spinach and sprinkle with cheese.
  7. Broil 1 to 2 minutes, until cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy.

Very good and easy fish dish -- followed as directed but used 2 bay leaves. Served with tossed salad for a great and easy meal. Thanks for sharing!

Very easy! I never would have thought of using nutmeg, but it made the dish. Thanks for sharing :-)

Jociecee, great recipe. I did stray a bit ... one cup water, one cup wine. And I can NEVER seem to stay with ONE bay leaf - used 3. I poached the fish for about 5 minutes, then finished the dish on the bbq. I also used fresh cooked spinach and substituted dill for the nutmeg, as it isn't hubby's fave. Served with basmati rice. Thanks for making my first PAC a great experience.
