Mirin-Poached Salmon with Spring Salad

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (19 votes)

Poaching fish with a little flavorful liquid may be the easiest way to cook fish! This quick poached-fish recipe stars salmon, but tuna, mahi-mahi or cod work just as well. Look for pea sprouts, also called “pea shoots,” at farmers’ markets and in well-stocked supermarkets. Or use 1 more cup thinly sliced snap peas instead.

3 Reviews for Mirin-Poached Salmon with Spring Salad

My newest addition to my "go to" salmon recipe collection

I made the recipe exactly as written, except added some shredded carrots as well. I had never tried pea sprouts before so this was a good excuse. Everyone loved the dish. Next time I might remove about have of the ginger matchsticks after cooking, but prior to dressing the salad. Loved the pea sprouts and radishes, but your own salad concoction will do just fine.

Delicious, healthy, easy
Delicious AND Simple!

Great recipe! After the fish was done cooking, I removed it from the pan and continued to reduce the sauce. Terrific to drizzle over steamed rice. That, plus steamed broccoli, and you have a super simple, healthy and delicious meal! Thanks for the great recipe. It's a keeper. (I did alter it slightly by adding garlic and reducing the ginger.)


I didn't have the reduced-sodium soy sauce so I used the regular one. Plus, we didn't do all the fancy vegetable. I just steamed up the youchoy green and rice to go with this dish.

So easy to make and so tasty. Will defintely make this dish again in the near future.

Easy and fast
