This poached salmon recipe is served with a fragrant dill, onion and mustard sauce. Poaching is a great way to cook salmon or any similar fish because it is easy and pretty much foolproof, so long as you keep the water at a simmer rather than a boil, and choose your poaching liquid to complement the type of fish you are using. Poaching is also a versatile cooking method.

You might like to poach salmon in white wine and water, in bouillon, or in even in a very basic water and vinegar mixture. Salmon can be poached on the hob, in the oven or even in the microwave, as long as the dish is covered with pierced plastic film. Poached salmon recipes tend to be rich, flavorful and moist, and if you usually fry or bake, you are sure to enjoy how moist and juicy the fish is if you choose this cooking method instead.

Salmon is also great grilled, baked or fried but poaching ensures the moisture remains locked in and the salmon can absorb flavors from the wine, bouillon or vinegar water as it cooks. The following recipe boasts a creamy horseradish, mustard and dill weed sauce, which balances piquancy and smoothness, and really complements the fish flavor. Serve this dish with green beans and boiled potatoes, or consider broccoli and white rice, or even mashed potatoes and corn on the cob. This recipe makes enough for the whole family and it is rich in nutrients as well as flavor.

Hi, my name is Christine. I am happy you are visiting today. Food is very important to everyone, and in this family we love to eat all kinds of dishes from meat and chicken to international cuisine, crockpot creations and more. Seafood is something we also love, and I love the fact it is nutritious as well as very tasty.

Everyone knows 'the big three' which are cod, tuna and salmon, but sometimes it is fun to try different types of fish, such as perch, trout, monkfish, or even shellfish like mussels or clams. There are seafood recipes for every season and occasion, those served chilled for a refreshing burst of flavor, and those served hot in stew or soup form.

Choose from crispy fried fish, tender pan-fried or poached cuts, or what about a seafood medley boasting the most wonderful flavors of the sea, lake or river? Seafood can be served as part of a salad or savory dish, or it can be served as an appetizer or snack. Bacon-wrapped scallops, anyone? You will find a comprehensive collection of wonderful seafood recipes right here, for your inspiration and enjoyment.

Thanks for visiting,
