Tarragon vinaigrette is delicious drizzled over salads and steamed vegetables; it’s also a wonderful way to liven up simple poached salmon. The flavors of tarragon and salmon are meant to be together, and the tart dressing provides an elegant foil to the rich salmon in this Poached Salmon with Tarragon Vinaigrette recipe. Delicious!
1. In a wide sauté pan with a tight fitting lid, add the lemon peel, peppercorns, bay leaf, salt, and onion, if using. Add 1-inch of water, then bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the onion is tender, if using.
2. Place the salmon skin-side down and cover the pan. Turn off the heat. Let the salmon sit and steam for 8 to 10 minutes, per inch of thickness.
