Poached Salmon

Poached Salmon sounds nice and fancy but it's actually one of the easiest ways to cook salmon. It comes out perfect and tender every single time.

Prep Time

        Prep time: 5 minutes
        Cook time: 15 minutes
        Yield: Serves 4


    •    kosher salt
    •    1 cup water
    •    1 cup dry white wine
    •    3 cloves garlic, smashed
    •    lemon wedges, for serving
    •    freshly ground black pepper
    •    4 x 6 oz. skinless salmon fillets
    •    few sprigs fresh dill, plus more for serving


  1. Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a shallow pan over medium heat, bring wine, water, dill, and garlic cloves to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Add salmon fillets and let simmer, covered, until cooked through, 10 minutes. Remove salmon carefully with a fish spatula or large slotted spoon.
  2. Serve with fresh dill and lemon wedges.
