Simply Poached Salmon

Recipe by GothicGranola

Delicious, easy way to poach salmon- would make a good vegetable stock as well without the fish. I did this with sea bass and it worked just as well.

I agree--this is a delicious and easy way to prepare salmon. My children (ages 10-14) now frequently request salmon for dinner. Thanks for sharing a recipe that's convenient on a week night, healthful, and we all enjoy.

  1. In a large pot or deep skillet, combine all the ingredients except the salmon. Simmer the mixture for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
  2. Add the salmon, skin side down, and poach it at a bare simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until it is just cooked through. Transfer the salmon to a plate, cool, and chill.
