Poached Salmon with Herb Sauce February 22, 2015

Filed under: Uncategorized — kariryerson @ 12:00 am

I made this recipe from Rachael Ray’s 30-Minute Comfort Foods for dinner but is really is a much better brunch or lunch item. It’s very light and not terribly filling. Make sure to use lots of seasoning or it can be a bit bland.



  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 1/2 cups white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • A few springs of each – fresh dill, fresh tarragon and chives

Herb Sauce

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 3 tbsp chopped mix of fresh dill, fresh tarragon and fresh chives
  • 1 tbsp chives, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 seedless cucumber sliced
  • Toasted bread

Place salmon in a large, deep skillet and add wine and water. Add the bay leaf and fresh herbs. Place pan over high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and cover pan. Poach salmon for 8-10 minutes, or until fish is cooked. Remove the salmon from the pan and let cool.

Combine sauce ingredients in a bowl. To serve, place cucumber and salmon on the bread and top with sauce.
