Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce

I love poached salmon because it is really hard to mess up. You can not dry out poached salmon…it will be moist and tasty no matter what.

2 cups water
1 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped celery
4 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)

1/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/4 cup plain yogurt
2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill
1-1/2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
Dash hot pepper sauce

In a large nonstick skillet, combine the water, wine, onion and celery. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; add salmon and poach, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until fish is firm and flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the sauce ingredients. Serve with salmon.

Did I change anything? I cooked all of the fish, but it was too much for us to eat so I am going to save the rest of it for salmon salad later on this week.

What did the family think? Hubby and I were the only ones who ate the salmon. The boys had fish sticks…fish nuggets to be exact.
