Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I had never poached salmon  before and it showed. I overcooked the salmon slightly but the flavor was good and the sauce was great. This is a pretty simple recipe despite a lot of items in the poaching liquid.

Ingredients:

For the Poached Salmon:

  • 2 cups white wine
  • 2 cups vegetable stock (or water)
  • 2 onions, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small bunch dill
  • 5 sage leaves
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 2 lemons, quartered
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • 2 pounds salmon filet

For the Dill Horseradish Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped dill
  • 2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Kosher salt and cracked black pepper
  • Sliced chives, to garnish

Directions:

For the Poached Salmon: Bring a kettle of water to a boil then remove from heat. Heat white wine, vegetable stock (or water) onion, dill, sage leaves, bay leaves to a large skillet and bring to a simmer. Add lemon quarters to liquid squeezing each one into the skillet before adding it, then simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Add salmon, skin side down to the simmering liquid. Using the hot water from the kettle add additional water if necessary to cover the salmon. Cook until salmon is just cooked though, about 8 minutes. Remove from liquid and let sit for 15 minutes.
