Salmon Poached in White Wine

We recently got a massive piece of salmon from Costco that I cut into fillets. I was looking for an easy way to cook some of this so we could enjoy it as an easy weeknight meal. Poaching immediately stood out as a simple technique that made the salmon moist and delicious. And the best part is that it took about 20 minutes to make from start to finish so we could enjoy a healthy and delicious meal in the same time it would have taken to make a frozen pizza. 

  • 4 fillets salmon
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp chopped garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

  • Heat wine and water over medium-high heat until simmering.
  • Place salmon in poaching liquid and dot with butter. Sprinkle with parsley, garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 10-15 minutes, until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
