Servings 4


Step 1

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, bring wine and next 4 ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and place salmon in liquid. Cover with lid or foil and poach until done, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove salmon from pan and allow to cool.

Remove skin from salmon. Arrange salad ingredients on plates. Top with poached salmon and dressing.

Dressing: Combine all ingredients in a jar with lid and shake to mix.

This recipe yields 4 servings.

Leaving the skin on during poaching will help keep the fillet intact. To remove the cooked fillet from the pan, carefully place a pair of spatulas under the fish and lift out gently and evenly. Pat gently with paper towels.
