Poached Salmon

Posted on April 24, 2013 with 0 comments

I thawed some frozen salmon filets from Trader Vic's... but then decided I wanted chicken... but I'd already thawed the salmon...

Hmmmmm...

So... I decided to poach the salmon (very easy... water, wine, peppercorns, salt, a chopped onion, and some parsley stems... add the fish, heat on low until the salmon looks opaque... turn off the heat and let it cool in the broth).

Make a pesto mayonnaise...

Sauté some cubed potatoes...

And serve the salmon atop a bed of arugula... allowing the mayo and salmon juices to dress the greens...

OK...  Better than chicken!
