Oven-Poached Salmon Fillets

Spring 2003, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 3.4 (78 votes)

Baking salmon fillets, covered, with a little wine and some shallots produces moist, succulent results as long as you remember the two cardinal rules of fish cookery: choose only the freshest fish and don't overcook it. Serve topped with your favorite sauce, if desired.

Moist and tasty

This recipe is the one I used the first time I cooked salmon and I was very pleased with the results. Consequently, this is a go-to recipe when I want something elegant and delicious but I am short on time. It goes together quickly and is very succulent and satisfying.

Easy, quick and delicious

quick and fantastic

This was so easy and fast, and the payoff was that of a well labored-over meal. In addition to the shallots I added fresh dill, garlic, green onion and cayenne in lieu of sauce. And I used smoked salt combined with a touch of sea salt. It was terrific and I will be making it again this week. Thank you!

Easy and flavorful

I love how easy it is to throw together this tasty mid-week meal. I back a cookie sheet of asparagus in the oven along with the salmon, and with a little leftover rice I can have a complete meal and a clean kitchen in 25 minutes.

Excellent ratio of labor to elegance. The Creamy Dill Sauce is the perfect compliment. I thought I was poaching salmon when I left the house this a.m., but turned out to be lake trout. Still came out great. I used an ovenproof skillet for poaching. Also recommend pouring a glass of the wine in a glass with the meal.
