Salmon is arguably one of the most nutritious fishes, but it’s easy to overcook on the sauté pan. Here is an easy method to get tender fillets!
2 ½ cups water
¾ cup dry white wine
¼ teaspoon salt
1 julienne-cut carrot (match-stick cuts)
1 julienne-cut leek
1 bay leaf, torn
2 thyme sprigs
4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
Simmer first 7 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Place salmon in pan and poach fillets until they are opaque in the middle, about 3 minutes on each side. Remove fillets right away.
Hints: Choose fillets that are similar in size so they cook evenly. This dish is also delicious served cold!
