Directions

  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter and saute the onions, carrots, and celery for 5 minutes. Add the water, wine, and salt and pepper to the skillet. Let the mixture simmer for 5 additional minutes.
  2. Wrap the salmon in cheesecloth and place it in the boiling liquid. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer gently for about 15 minutes (5 minutes per pound in case you bought a larger salmon steak).
  3. Remove salmon from the skillet carefully, unwrap and serve hot.

I added some vegetable stock to the poached salmon mixture to intensify the flavour. My family enjoyed it, so I would do it again, but I would use 3 cups of water instead of 4, and dispense with the cheesecloth-just be gentle on the salmon.

This recipe was just what I needed for a busy day with houseguests. I served rice as a side dish and after the salmon was finished cooking, I poured the juices in the pan over the rice. It was fabulous!

This tasted wonderful but I think the cooking time should be increased a bit if you like your Salmon cooked through. A fruity Chardonay went well with this dish. It will appear on my table again.
