As I learned (probably way too late in my life) poaching is a lot like boiling. No oil, no butter, no fishy smell =)
1 big chunk of peeled ginger (chopped)
1 small onion (chopped)
A handful of peppercorns straight from the grinder
Generous bit of salt.
Eyeball all of these ingredients because they're there for flavoring. Too much can't hurt.
Carefully drop in the salmon and wait for 7 minutes (8 minutes for more "well done" fish)
Done, salmon poached. Such an easy cleanup.
For 4-6 servings (decrease by half for 2-3)
1 cup Greek Yogurt (0% Fage Total)
Two big handfuls fresh basil
Zest and juice of 1 lime
Salt, pepper, lemon pepper seasoning to taste.
**In the future will consider adding mint**
