Poached Wild Salmon

Added to Recipes on Thu 07/08/2010


1/2 onion, thinly sliced

1 lemon, thinly sliced

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp whole peppercorns

1 sprig of dill or 1/4 teaspoon dry dill weed

1 sprig of parsley

2 (4-oz) wild salmon fillets or salmon steaks



Combine 2 1/2 cups of water with the onion, lemon, salt, peppercorns, dill, and parsley in a large skillet over high heat and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium, cover, and let simmer for 10 minutes.


Add the salmon, cover, and continue to simmer for 5 minutes (a little longer for fillets or steaks that are thicker than 1/2 inch), or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Lift the fillets from the pan with a spatula, discard the residue, and serve.
