Quick and Easy Poached Salmon

Poaching fish is a healthy way to cook it, as well as making sure it stays moist and adding a little extra flavor.


4 cups (946 ml) water
2 tablespoons (30 ml) lemon juice
1/4 cup (30 g) carrot, thinly sliced
1/2 cup (80 g) onion, thinly sliced
1 bay leaf
1 tablespoon (4 g) fresh dill, chopped
1/2 pound (225 g) salmon fillets


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C, or gas mark 4). Combine all ingredients except salmon in a saucepan and heat to boiling.
2. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes.
3. Place salmon in a glass baking dish large enough to hold salmon in a single layer; pour poaching liquid over.
4. Cover and bake for 20 minutes, or until salmon flakes easily.
