Poached salmon


When I grabbed a bundle of baby radish a day ago, I knew that it's time for spring and light dishes. So what could go better if not poached salmon?!

What we need:

salmon fillet pieces with skin on

for poaching:

1l water
½ teaspoon of salt
3 peppercorns
1 bay leaf
1 branch of rosemary
some dill
1 lemon

for salad:

lettuce leaves
radish
cucumber
basil or parsley
lemon

What we have to do:

1. Bring water to boil and add herbs, salt, and pepper, squeeze the juice of the lemon into the pot and put the lemon itself, too.
2. When water with spices starts to boil, put salmon pieces and cook for 8 minutes. Remove carefully from the water, take off the skin and serve with salad and some more lemon juice. Enjoy!!!

  1. In school we poached in wine or stock it makes the fish much more flavorful. Great job.
