I have used salmon fillets here, but it works equally well with salmon steaks. Just watch your poaching time. Steaks can be thicker than fillets and may require an adjustment to the cooking time.

This is a delicious way to eat healthier. Salmon is so healthy already and to poach it with no fat creates a fabulous lean protein meal.
