Poached Salmon

This would make an easy dish for Lent or anytime.

1 to 1½ pounds salmon fillets
½ cup dry white wine (a good Sauvignon Blanc)
½ cup water
A few thin slices of yellow onion and/or 1 shallot, peeled and sliced thin
Several sprigs of fresh dill or sprinkle of dried dill
Freshly ground black pepper

Put wine, water, dill, parsley and onions in a saute pan, and bring to a simmer on medium heat.

Place salmon fillets, skin-side down on the pan. Cover. Cook 5-10 minutes or to desired done-ness. Do not overcook.

Serve sprinkled with freshly ground black pepper.

We had this with a salad and a baguette. (Yes, we eat a lot of baguettes around here.) 🙂

What did the family think? It was good. Next time I will make sure to place some of the shallots on top of the salmon when serving it. The boys had fish sticks.
