Dr. Andrew Weil’s Easy Poached Salmon

Dr. Andrew Weil’s Easy Poached Salmon created by mersaydees

This recipe is from Dr. Andrew Weil’s book, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health. When I made this I used too small a pan to take all the vegetables and the salmon, so the tops of my salmon were not covered in liquid; this worked for us because DH is a sashimi connoisseur so he went for the least done piece. I also was surprised to discard the vegetables! I nibbled on the delicious carrot slices, though! And yes, this is an easy dish and the salmon came out just great! :)

  • Adjust heat to simmer and cook 5 minutes.
  • Turn off heat and without stirring, allow to rest 10 minutes.
  • Carefully remove to a serving platter; the salmon will be perfectly done. It is delicious served either hot or cold.

    This is great and oh so easy! I didn't have any bay leaves but otherwise made as directed served with tossed salad for a very good and healthy supper. Thanks for sharing!
