Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan or high-sided skillet, combine 5 cups water, vinegar, 3 sprigs rosemary and 1/2 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 10 minutes. Season both sides of salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place salmon skin-side down in the pan of simmering liquid and cook, adjusting heat to maintain a light simmer. Cook 10 to 12 minutes or until salmon is just opaque in center. Carefully transfer salmon to a serving dish. (Discard the poaching liquid.)
