Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min
Total time: 25 min
Serves: 4


Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) pieces of King Salmon
  • 1 (2 inch) piece of ginger, grated or finely diced
  • 2 whole cloves of garlic, smashed but not diced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • 10 whole peppercorns
  • 2½ cups water or light fish stock
  • 3 tablespoons peanut or coconut oil
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 bunch chives, diced
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt

Directions

Season salmon with sea salt. Add 1 tbsp oil to a high-rimmed sauté pan and bring to a medium heat.

Add ginger and sauté for one minute. Then add whole garlic cloves and sauté for another minute. Add wine, water, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt.

Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer at medium-low heat. Add salmon to the broth and cover.

Cook for 5-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of your king pieces. Remove from poaching liquid and let rest.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil until very hot. Cover salmon pieces with diced chives, and pour hot oil over them. The chives should sizzle and get crispy.

Plate salmon pieces with a side of your favorite greens, roasted seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes, or your favorite side dish.

Gary's pro cooking tip: Shoot for the liquid to cover at least ⅔ of the salmon fillet for an effective poach. Also, make sure your poaching liquid is plenty salty! Too much water and you’ll take flavor out of the fish.
