Welcome to Fish Week

Much has been written about techniques used to catch fish, but this week, which I’ve dubbed “fish week,” will focus on how to prepare your catch into a delicious meal. Let’s kick the week off with one of my favorite dishes: poached salmon. This simple recipe requires 1 to 1.5 pounds of salmon fillets, white wine, water, one small yellow onion, fresh or dried dill, parsley, black pepper, and a skillet.

Slice the small yellow onion into thin rings and place in the skillet along with a few sprigs of parsley and a sprinkling of dill. Cover the onion and seasonings with a half cup of water and a half cup of wine. Bring the liquid to a light simmer on medium heat. Once the liquid is bubbling nicely, place the fillets in, skin side down, cover the skillet and allow the fillets to cook for five minutes. Take the fillets out and sprinkle with black pepper, and now your dish is ready to serve! Of course, to catch beautiful salmon in the first place, you’ll want to make sure you’re using the proper 2 cycle oil on your fishing boat.
