Gently cooking salmon in a savory broth keeps the fish moist and tender. Serve it warm or chilled with the salad of fresh herbs.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Season salmon with 1 teaspoon salt. Bring wine, water, peppercorns and crushed red pepper to a simmer in a large saucepan. Reduce the heat so the liquid is steaming, but not bubbling. Place the salmon in the steaming liquid (the fillets will fit tightly) and cook very gently until just cooked through, 6 to 10 minutes. Remove the salmon from the liquid.

  • Toss mint and parsley leaves, shallot, oil and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in a medium bowl. Season with a pinch of salt.

  • Drizzle the salmon with the remaining lemon juice and serve with the salad.


Make Ahead Tip: Poach salmon (Step 1) and refrigerate in poaching liquid for up to 1 day. Drain; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.

Easy quick and delicious My husband loves salmon and this was a recipe he looks forward to having again. I cut the amount of fish in half and wished I had made more for leftovers. Instead of serving herbs as a salad I cut up the mint and flat parsley tossed with dressing and served on top of the fish. A real winning combination! Pros: Fast easy light but satisfying. Read More
