Poaching imparts a wonderful flavor to the fish, and the sizzling chives are a fun, delicious, and unique way to top it off.
4 (6-ounce) pieces of King Salmon Available In Our Premium Subscription Box
1 (2 inch) piece of ginger, grated or finely diced
2 whole cloves of garlic, smashed but not diced
½ cup dry white wine
10 whole peppercorns
2½ cups water or light fish stock
3 tablespoons peanut or coconut oil
4 bay leaves
1 bunch chives, diced
2 tablespoons sea salt
Season salmon with sea salt. Add 1 tbsp oil to a high-rimmed sauté pan and bring to a medium heat.
Add ginger and sauté for one minute. Then add whole garlic cloves and sauté for another minute. Add wine, water, bay leaves, peppercorns, and salt.
Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer at medium-low heat. Add salmon to the broth and cover.
Cook for 5-7 minutes, depending on the thickness of your king pieces. Remove from poaching liquid and let rest.
Heat 1 tbsp of oil until very hot. Cover salmon pieces with diced chives, and pour hot oil over them. The chives should sizzle and get crispy.
Plate salmon pieces with a side of your favorite greens, roasted seasonal vegetables, mashed potatoes, or your favorite side dish.
