Ingredients

  • 4

    (6-ounce) salmon fillets

  • 2

    cups Champagne

  • 1/4

    cup fresh lemon juice

  • 1

    lemon zest

  • 1/2

    medium onion, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1

    tablespoon capers

  • 1

    tablespoon sliced olive

  • 4

    (5-inch) fresh tarragon sprigs

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/4

    teaspoon ground black pepper

Directions

Place salmon in a shallow pan large enough to hold in a single layer. Add Champagne, lemon juice, zest and enough water to just cover fillets. Remove fish and bring poaching liquid to a boil. Lay fish skin sides down back in pan and top with onion slices, capers, olives, tarragon, salt and pepper. Reduce heat until liquid is at a very low simmer and poach 4 to 6 minutes, depending on thickness of the fish. Fish is done when flesh is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. Remove fish from liquid, along with onions, capers, olives, and tarragon. Drain well and serve immediately.
