Chuck's Easy Poached Salmon

"This is adapted from my father in law's recipe for poached salmon- it is absolutely simple, very low cal, and tastes great cold or warm. We like it cold with an aioli or a creamy dill sauce."

Ready In:




  • Place lemon slices, dill and ginger in a foil pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Place salmon on top.
  • Add wine and then fill pan with water until the fish is completely covered.
  • Cover with foil and poke knife holes all over the foil to allow steam to escape.
  • Put in oven at 350 for approximately 25 minutes (cooking time depends on thickness of filet- if the fish flakes easily with a fork, then it's ready).

    Nothing is better than poached salmon. This recipe is very easy,used a deep casserole dish, fresh ginger as I didn't have pickled ginger, chardonnay wine, we loved the taste of the fresh dill. Served the salmon with a dill sauce, made of mayonnaise, dill and lemon, yummy. Thank you, Miraklegirl for posting this easy, tasty recipe.

    There is nothing like the taste of fresh caught salmon. The only thing I did different was add miced garlic. If you have uneaten leftovers - mix it into garlic cream cheese and spread on crackers. It is to die for. That's what I did and even people who hated fish loved this spread. See my other reviews for healthy recipes.

    I have never used more than a squeeze of lemon when making salmon, and boy have I been missing out! I used a few grates of fresh ginger in place of the pickled. This was sooo good! I paired this with her lemon parsley potatoes. Great match!
