Salmon Fillet Recipes: Poached Salmon with Basil Vinaigrette
This one of the nicest poached salmon fillet recipes I have tried.
With this easy recipe you are serving gourmet salmon, but it is really so so easy.
Add white vinegar, onions, carrots, parsley, thyme, cloves salt and peppercorns. Bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer gently for 3 minutes (slightly longer if you are using very thick steaks or fillets).
Remove the salmon from the poaching liquid with a slotted spoon and drain. Set aside.
Place all of the ingredients for the vinaigrette, except the oils, in a food processor (a blender will do) and pulse until well combined.
With the machine running, add the oils in a thin stream until they are well mixed. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve the salmon cooled or cold with the basil vinaigrette drizzled over it.
