Default Rec: Poached Salmon

We love salmon and eat a lot of it. We get salmon fillets at the
Costco or Sams club and poach them for use through the week.

This is our own recipe, and is made with Japanese ingredients.

2 pound salmon fillet
2 cups water (enough to make liquid 1/2 - 3/4 inches deep)
1/4 cup Ponzu* vinegar (or juice of 1/2 lemon)
1 teaspoon Hon-Dashi* powder (or chicken base powder)
1/2 cup sake (or white wine)
3 large scallions, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger root

Mix all ingredients and bring to boil in large skillet with a tight
cover. Cut salmon fillet in half if it won't fit in skillet.

Lower heat to a slow boil and add the salmon and cover. Salmon is done
in about 3 minutes. We have a glass cover and watch it, when it turns
light pink in the top center, it is done. Remove immediately, can be
eaten warm but we usually let it cool. Then cut into serving size
pieces and refrigerate for use in salads or other meals.

I like to add some vegetables to the poaching liquid, like carrots,
broccoli etcm cook and eat as a soup.

* Ponzu vinegar is a rice vinegar seasoned with citrus
* Hon-Dashi is a bonito stock base used in Japanese cooking.

Sounds like a delicious portmanteau dish :-) I may make some up this
weekend for next week's lunches

An alternative preparation for salmon is as follows.

Place salmon, fillet or steak, on a large sheet of foil. Pour over some
liquid (amount not critical, you are aiming to steam the fish not give it
post mortal swimming lessons), a dry white wine would be excellent. Add
fresh herbs of your choice - Parsley or tarragon perhaps. Add some spring
onions (scallions for those of you on the left hand side of the Atlantic)
and season well.

Fold the foil up and seal the fish in. Leave enough space in the parcel for
the liquid to steam.

Place parcel on the top shelf of your dish washer and run it at a normal
heat setting. Perhaps best not to add detergent!!

Result - one perfectly steamed salmon.

Hi Brian,

I haven't got a dishwasher (except me)!

What temperature oven would you recommend.

Take care,
Phil.

I don't think its too critical as the salmon is steaming rather than baking.
Try about 150 deg C for about 30min

This is cool !!
I can clean up from one meal and prepare the next all at the same time.

Now I'll need to raise the temp on the hot water in the washing machine
so I can boil shrimp and corn while i get me laundry done.

Ain't technology grand ??

There's also the "putting your dinner on the car engine" school of cooking,
too : )

One minor glitch - as he said, don't add detergent:-)

I'll continue to use the stove or the BBQ.

But I always clean the fish before I cook 'em.

I think I'd remove the Jetdry before I tried it. (JET-DRY® products are
non-toxic and will not leave a hazardous film on your dishes.) It might be
non-toxic and it shouldn't get into your wrapped fish, but I'd remove it
anyways. JMHO

Sounds like a way to use a lot of water and heat. A normal wash cycle
for my dishwasher uses 8.6 gallons of water and takes 94 minute to run.
A "light wash" takes 7.0 gallons and runs 94 minutes and a "rinse and
hold" uses 4.3 gallons and runs 12 minutes. I don't have the energy
sheet showing how many kwh the washer uses. Not to mention the use of
the aluminum foil, which uses a *lot* of energy to produce. I avoid
using foil, although I do have a roll in the drawer. It'll probably
last me a few years at the amount of foil I use!

Now let's see... how long would it take to cook the fish in a steamer?
3 minutes and 2 cups of water.....

It sounds a lot cheaper and environmentally sensitive, not to mention
quicker, to just poach or steam the fish in the normal manner.

I'm sure your way faster & more the norm. I think the point of it was to
show people how easy fish can be to cook. Generally, people like try to find
new & creative ways to cook(which I'm all for). I just did a smoked fish the
way Alton Brown does it on "Good Eats", using a cardboard box, wooden dowels
& saw dust, it was a riot(fun). I'm sure my smoker would have done it well,
this was just more fun.

Remember: if you do the same old thing, the same old way, you get the same
old results.

BTW: The smoked fish is excellent and their way almost no cleanup. lol
