Ingredients

Instructions

  • Combine the Sauvignon Blanc, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon slices, rosemary, capers, shallots and garlic in a large pan (I used a 12” cast iron skillet).
  • Add enough water so the liquid reaches a depth of about 1 ½ inches. You want to the salmon to be submerged. It took about 2 cups in my skillet.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to where it’s barely simmering.
  • Rinse your salmon under cold water to remove the protective ice glaze.
  • Turn off the heat and add salmon to the liquid, skin side down.
  • Return heat to a simmer. Be sure the liquid simmers, but doesn’t boil.
  • Once simmering, cover pan tightly and cook for 5-10 minutes (shorter for smaller pieces and longer for larger pieces or at altitude).
  • Turn off the heat and let the salmon rest in the liquid for 5 minutes or until the poached salmon is completely opaque. It will take longer with larger pieces and at altitude.
  • Remove the poached salmon from the pan and serve with your favorite veggies and rice.
