Poached salmon guidance?

nasv | Sep 22, 2011 12:13 PM

I have two skin-on sockeye salmon filets (defrosting in fridge, TJs Alaskan wild), and I usually pan sear, broil, or bake, but I've heard a lot about poaching salmon.

I did some searches online, and it looks like in general you create a flavorful broth with wine and water, place in the salmon (and the liquid doesn't totally cover it?), and cook to desired doneness.

I cook a lot, but fish is where I lose confidence and I overcook it often. Some of the recipes I saw online were almost identical with one KEY difference... poaching time was ranging from 5 to 20 minutes!!

Any guidance here please?
