Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saute pan just large enough to hold the salmon in a single layer, combine the wine, water, star anise, and peppercorns.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium heat, decrease heat to low, and simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Using a spatula, carefully slip the salmon into the pan, cover, and poach until almost opaque throughout, or an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center reads 125-130°, about 8 minutes.
  4. Transfer the salmon to warmed dinner plates or shallow pasta bowls.
  5. Drizzle each piece with a little olive oil and sprinkle some chopped cilantro on top.
  6. Taste poaching liquid and season lightly with salt and pepper.
  7. Spoon a couple of tablespoons of the poaching liquid around each fillet and serve immediately.
