Salmon - Simple Poaching

  • 1-1.5 # fresh salmon fillets or steaks
  • 1 T. each of fresh chopped parsley, rosemary
  • 1/2 teaspoon capers
  • 1 peeled garlic clove, sliced

Place salmon in a skillet and cover with water.  Add herbs, capers, and garlic.  Bring water to a boil, turn down heat to simmer, and cook until salmon flakes easily with a fork in the thickest spot (usually ~ 10 minutes per inch of thickness).  Save the poaching liquid for the Fish Stew (may freeze).  Sometimes our cats get a very special treat by having the cooled liquid put on their dry food!

1.5 # of fresh fish serves 4 people.
