Each time I make this my husband remarks "I never get tired of this dish!" It's light and healthy with restaurant style layered flavors, not that heavy feeling in your stomach afterwards. We love it!!
Poached Salmon with Creamy Piccata Sauce
Easy poached salmon is sophisticated with a creamy caper-and-lemon sauce. Make it a meal: Serve with snow peas or roasted asparagus and a whole grain like quinoa or brown rice.

I made this tonight...I buy fresh, Alaskan salmon when it's in season and this recipe is wonderful! I added fresh parsley and dill to both the poaching liquid and the sauce along with lemon zest. I served this with Herbed Lemon Orzo & threw some dill in that as well. It was a great dinner!!
To the last post, Norway is especially known for its sustainable fishery practices, so you should be able to purchase farmed salmon from here with good conscience. In fact, a lot of North-atlantic salmon these days available in major markets in the US come from Norway. My toddler (a salmon lover) eat this with fascination-the capers proved to be excellent motor skill practice.
Great recipe except I can not afford $ 15 a pound for salmon....I refuse to buy "farmed" fish as I feel it pollutes our environment...
