Herbed Wine Poached Salmon


I try to get salmon in the family at least once a week during salmon season. This week I covered it in fresh herbs and cooked in a wine hot tub, the results, perfectly moist salmon. I like lots of herbs, so I covered my fillet, if your making for more than 2 people double the herbs.

4 springs of chives, minced
4 springs of tarragon, minced
Lemon, thinly sliced
Salmon fillet
Drizzle of olive oil
Salt & pepper
white wine

Preheat oven to 425.

Place salmon in a tight fitting pan, you want just a little room on the sides. Salt & pepper salmon. Place salmon in pan, top with herbs, lemon slices and pour in wine to come up 1/2 way. Drizzle with a little olive oil.

Bake for 20 minutes or so until cooked through.
