Sure, it seems gourmet, but poached salmon is surprisingly easy to make.
Simply bring water to a boil with some carrots, celery, onion, lemon juice, dill and any other seasonings of choice; cook for about eight minutes. Next, lower to a simmer and add salt and pepper-seasoned fillets, then cook for an additional five minutes. If you want to get extra fancy and make a meal out of it, nutrient-rich sides like Brussels sprouts, grilled artichokes, or peppers or mushrooms (sautéed lightly in oil) pair well—or you could simply serve it over salad greens and asparagus.
