Poached salmon sounds great but it’s certainly one of the simplest methods for leather. It comes out perfect and tender at every moment.
4 (6-oz.) skinless salmon fillets
Freshly ground black pepper
1 c. dry white wine
1 c. water
Few sprigs fresh dill, plus more for serving
3 cloves garlic smashed
Lemon wedges, for serving
- Season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a shallow pan over medium heat, bring wine, water, dill, and garlic cloves to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Add salmon fillets and let simmer, covered until cooked through 10 minutes. Remove salmon carefully with a fish spatula or large slotted spoon.
- Serve with fresh dill and lemon wedges.
