  • Summary

    The easy way to perfect poached salmon. [Photograph: Vicky Wasik] This delicate poached salmon with a bright yogurt-dill sauce makes for an easy, light dinner that can be served chilled, room temperature, or warm. The secret to the tenderest and juiciest fish is to use a cold-start poaching method, in which the fish is added to cold poaching water and then gently heated until cooked.

    Ingredients

    • Cold water
    • Juice of 1 lemon (about 2 tablespoons; 30ml)
    • 1 medium leek or onion (about 6 ounces; 170g), halved
    • 1 large stalk celery (about 2 ounces; 55g), cut into large pieces
    • 1/2 fennel bulb, sliced (about 4 ounces; 115g) (optional)
    • A few fresh sprigs thyme and/or dill
    • 1 bay leaf
    • Kosher salt
    • 4 (8-ounce; 225g) pieces center-cut boneless, skinless salmon fillet
    • For the Yogurt Sauce:
    • 1 cup (235ml) full-fat yogurt
    • 1 tablespoon minced shallot from 1 small (1-ounce; 30g) shallot
    • 1 tablespoon (about 10g) minced fresh dill
    • 2 tablespoons (30ml) fresh juice from 1 lemon
    • 2 tablespoons (30ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • Large pinch ground coriander seed
