We love poached salmon, and the orange-lemon reduction was a pleasant surprise. I had everything but green onions on hand, so I substituted dried minced onion, and probably used twice as much as I should have. Thanks for posting this recipe, Tootie. Made for Top Favorites of 2008 Tag, as recommended by Sharon123.

Fantastic! So light and fresh tasting. I served it on a bed of watercress with jasmine rice. I won't know what it tastes like leftover because we gobbled it all up! I will make it again really soon (probably tomorrow) because I think it would be fab in a salad for lunches.

I had never had salmon poached in wine and orange juice and I just loved it! This was so good the next day too straight out of the refrigerator! Thanks for a delicious way to eat salmon!
