Oven Poached Salmon

Poaching fish sounds hard right? And it seems fancy. And dinner-party-esq. It doesn’t sound like a 30 minute after-work no-big-deal meal does it?

But you know what, it totally is. This was an easy breezy super delicious dinner. It’s also really healthy because I realized I didn’t use any oil or fats- and it didn’t matter nor was missed because the fish came out so moist and delicious. The thing I love best about cooking meat in the oven is you don’t really risk over-cooking it unless your timer is broken.

I’d recommend this as a main coarse if you want to impress dinner party guests but you don’t want to actually do a lot of work. But I’d also recommend it as a random Tuesday night at home. I served it with some brown rice and steam broccoli and it was just the best. (Gavin, attest.)

Oven Poached Salmon

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F
  • Place 2 salmon fillets (or however many you want- also can be any kind of fish that is meaty) on a lightly greased oven pot or dutch oven.
  • Add a handful of sliced cherry tomatoes and radishes around the fish
  • Pour in 1/3 cup of dry white wine
  • Pour in a 1/3 cup of chicken broth
  • Add 1 tbsp of capers
  • Sprinkle on salt and pepper and a generous amount of dried or fresh thyme over fish and veggies
  • Cover and bake for 12-15 minutes
  • If enjoying over brown rice, spoon the sauce in the pan over the rice.

So easy!
