4 servings


  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) salmon fillet, skin removed

  • ¼ teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth

  • 1 cup dry white wine (such as Chardonnay)

  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger

  • 8 sprigs fresh dill, chopped, or more to taste

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • ½ teaspoon soy sauce (Optional)


  1. Season salmon with seasoned salt.

  2. Combine chicken broth, wine, and ginger in a large saucepan and bring almost to a boil.

  3. Set aside about a teaspoon of the dill and green onion for the sauce. Add the rest to the pot; then add salmon. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook until easily flaked with a fork, 8 to 10 minutes, or until desired doneness. Remove salmon from pot carefully using a slotted spoon or spatula and place on a plate.

  4. Combine 2 tablespoons of poaching liquid from the pot with reserved teaspoon of dill and green onion; add soy sauce. Pour over salmon before serving or after plating.

Cook's Notes:

You can use regular salt instead of seasoned salt and ground ginger instead of fresh.

If it doesn't look like there's enough liquid in your pot to completely cover the fish, add more wine, broth, or water.
