Necessary ingredients for poaching salmon

Rella | Jul 10, 2011 02:33 PM

I poached two salmon fillets in a court bouillon of

water and chicken stock

sliced onions


celery leaves

parsley leaves

lemon juice

bay leaf

I've not poached salmon in water only, nor with only a couple of ingredients; but frankly, the salmon tasted no different than baked, mostly plain w/a little olive oil.

Seems a waste of time; but I can't vouch for how the salmon might taste with less ingredients.

Does anyone recommend a simpler poaching liquid?
