This is such a simple and quick way to prepare salmon (or trout or other similar fish).  You can use any seasoning you like here, but thyme works especially well.  I suggest using a dry white wine (maybe a sauvignon blanc).  Always use a good quality wine to cook with (if you wouldn’t want to drink it, you probably don’t want to flavor your food like it!). This is also good with a little lemon zest thrown in, if your wine is not too fruity.


2-3 6oz salmon fillets

1/3 cup dry white wine

1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped

1.Place salmon in a skillet.  Pour wine over top and sprinkle with thyme.

2.Heat over high heat until wine starts to simmer, then cover and reduce heat to low-medium.

3.Simmer until salmon is cooked (completely opaque and segments flake apart easily), approximately 10-12 minutes.  Discard poaching liquid and serve.
