dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste
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.
A little lacking in flavor but good and I added peppercorns and chives. I served it with baked artichoke hearts and tomato slices.
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.
I followed the recipe to the letter and it turned out perfectly. Agreed that this would be perfect with a rich sauce like Hollandaise, but since I wasn't up for making it, I served this hot with the "Elegant Scalloped Potatoes" recipe on this site. The richness of the potatoes really worked with the subtle flavour of the fish. By the way, there's a video tutorial of this recipe in the "Tips and Advice" section - very useful if you've never poached before.
I have tried many salmon recipies and I've found this one to be easy and simply delicious.
I tried this recipe for a brunch. It was superb! I didn't precook the onion, carrots or celery. Just put them in the water with the wine. It was the hit of the day!
I replaced 2 cups water with 2 cups chicken stock for extra flavour. I also added 2 tbsp fish sauce and 1 tbsp peppercorns, which I thought "kicked it up a notch"!
NOTE: This is also really good served chilled on a hot summer's day.
