    1. 1
      Place salmon in a shallow pan large enough to hold in a single layer.
    2. 2
      Add champagne, lemon juice, zest and enough water to just cover fillets.
    3. 3
      Remove fish and bring poaching liquid to a boil.
    4. 4
      Lay fish skin sides down back in pan and top with onion slices, capers, olives, tarragon, salt and pepper. Reduce heat until liquid is at a very low simmer and poach 4 to 6 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish.
    5. 5
      Fish is done when flesh is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
    6. 6
      Remove fish from liquid, along with onions, capers, olives, and tarragon.
    7. 7
      Drain well and serve immediately.

      A nice way to cook salmon. I usually bake or grill - so poaching is new to me. This was a nice liquid to use - added subtle flavor to the fish. Thanks! ZWT 3
