Free Healthy Recipe - Poached salmon

I know of nothing easier nor more impressive than a cold poached salmon for a special meal. A large whole salmon will easily serve 12 people with leftovers for the next day. Ask for Huon salmon farmed in Tasmania. The texture is better than other farmed salmon and the farming practices are kinder. Serving size should be approximately 160g.

Ingredients
3 kg whole salmon, cleaned and scaled
1 lemon sliced
Method

Place the fish in a fish poacher with the other kaffir lime leaves, peppercorns, lemon slices and star anise. Cover with cold water.
Place on the stove and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to simmer for 10 minutes.
Turn off the heat and leave the fish in the water to cool.
Once cool, remove the fish from the water.

Carefully peel off the skin and serve on a platter with wedges of fresh lime.

Makes 12 servings
