This is a delicious, creative way to serve salmon. You can serve the salmon on a bed of cooked noodles (I enjoy fettuccine) or on its own with a side of vegetables.

It was good. Kind of lemony. I used chicken broth instead of water and chicken boullion cubes. The capers were a really nice touch. I reduced some wine at the end to give the sauce more body. Served w/ dill and lemon flavored rice. Served it second time lemon-garlic green beans. Read More

This is my family's favorite salmon recipe. We add 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, extra capers, and 1/3 cup white wine in the reduction. Read More

Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic recipe. I made it for a romantic dinner tonight and my husband could not stop talking about how delicious it was. I followed the advice of others and added a 1/3 cup white wine to the poaching liquid and when I did the sauce reduction I also put in a teaspoon or two of the liquid from my jar of capers. I love the way the salmon came out perfect so moist. It was simply scrumptious. I am definitely going to keep this recipe as a family favorite. Read More

Yummo! I thought this was very good. I did not have chicken bouillon granules, so I omitted the water and just used chicken broth. Will make again. Read More
