This is such a simple and quick way to prepare salmon (or trout or other similar fish). You can use any seasoning you like here, but thyme works especially well. I suggest using a dry white wine (maybe a sauvignon blanc). Always use a good quality wine to cook with (if you wouldn’t want to drink it, you probably don’t want to flavor you food like it!). This is also good with a little lemon zest thrown in, if your wine is not too fruity.
- 2-3 6oz salmon fillets
- 1/3 cup dry white wine
- 1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
1. Place salmon in a skillet. Poor wine over top and sprinkle with thyme.
2. Heat over high heat until wine starts to simmer, then cover and reduce heat to low-medium.
3. Simmer until salmon is cooked (completely opaque and segments flake apart easily), approximately 10-12 minutes. Discard poaching liquid and serve.
