Poached Salmon Piccata
For all of you who are trying to squeeze into a bikini, this dish is low calories and lower in fat. Plus, it's simple to prepare and tastes delicious. The benefit of eating salmon is its high Omega-3 content. You may opt to serve this over a bed of gluten-free noodles or on a bed of cooked spinach.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Yield: 2 servings
/ cup water / cup sherry
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice / teaspoon chicken bouillon granules 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained / teaspoon salt / teaspoon pepper
1 Place the water, sherry, lemon juice, bouillon granules, capers, salt, pepper, parsley flakes, dill, mint, and butter in a medium skillet over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil.
2 Reduce the heat to medium and add the salmon. Cover the skillet and simmer the filets for 7 to 8 minutes (cook 10 minutes per inch of thickness at the thickest part) or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. (You won't need to turn the fish over during cooking.)
3 Remove the fish from the skillet with a wide spatula to prevent the salmon from breaking apart. Discard the remaining liquid in the pan.
1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
/ teaspoon dried dill
/ teaspoon dried mint flakes
