Poaching Salmon

josephsm | Apr 13, 2009 02:42 PM

I volunteered to bring poached salmon to a potluck buffet before realizing I've never made it before. Is there a foolproof way to do this? I saw some reference to an Alton Brown show and using an electric skillet, which I have, but I did not see instructions on temperature/timing. Poached salmon usually tastes overcooked to me and I want to avoid that.

I am going to buy a large piece of fish so I'd have to do it in pieces in the electric skillet, or I'd try to fit it in my largest roasting pan if I poach it on the stove top. I want to make enough to feed 10- 15 or so.

Also, suggestions on a good sauce to make on the side are appreciated. I was thinking a yogurt/cucumber/garlic sauce, but maybe a mustard sauce is tastier?
