This poached salmon is a family favorite and its easy to do. I suggest serving rice and a veggie with this meal.

this recipe only calls for 4 oz of salmon??? thats crazy! a quater pound? i bought 2 pounds of fresh salmon and a huge amount of fresh dill. salmon came out moist and flaked with a fork nicely but it had no real flavor. i couldnt taste the dill and i thought it was just average. i didnt modify a thing i wish i would of. my expectations of recipes with as many stars as this one are way higher.

This was a really great dish. Who knew such little ingredients would make salmon taste this fantastic! The salmon was so moist. Hubby liked it and he's not a salmon lover. I also added a clove of garlic to the pot while it was cooking. This is definitely a keeper! Read More

I substituted a tablespoon of dry dill for the fresh and added 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. The end result was enjoyable Read More

I followed the recipe without modification. The texture of the salmon was nice and moist. But the taste was well nonexistent. It was soo bland! Salt and a lot of pepper had to be added at the table. Read More

The salmon comes out a bit bland in this preparation. The dill doesn't really get to do much here which is too bad as I do quite like some dill. The salmon itself did come out pretty nicely prepared. With a little salt pepper and lemon juice it ended up being good enough. Read More
