Poached Salmon Recipe

Poaching salmon may sound difficult or gourmet, but this poached salmon recipe is so easy to make and so delicious you will want to make it over and over.

Salmon is SUCH a healthy fish and so filled with needed nutrients like Omega-3 fatty acids.

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.
