Poached Salmon with Steamed Vegetables

- 1 salmon fillet
- 1 celery stalk, diced
- Pinch of lemon pepper
- Assorted raw vegetables
Put the salmon fillet, celery, and lemon pepper in a pot filled with just enough water to cover the fish completely. (Don't fill the pot more than you have to.)
Bring the water to a slow boil and let it continue for about 10 minutes, or until the thickest part of the fish is done.
Using a spatula, remove the salmon, gently turn it over, and scrape the skin from the underside.
At the same time in a separate pot, steam some mixed vegetables.
Suggestion: Use a metal steamer that sits at the bottom of the pot. Just fill it with about an inch of water, drop in the vegetables, bring the water to a boil, and cover the pot for 3 to 5 minutes.
