- Simple Poaching
# fresh salmon fillets or steaks
T. each of fresh chopped parsley, rosemary
peeled garlic clove, sliced
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!
