  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Fish, Low Fat, Low Calorie

 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/4 lb Salmon fillets
  • 2 c Champagne
  • 1/4 c Fresh-squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 md Yellow onion; sliced
  • 1 tb Capers
  • 4 5-inch sprigs fresh tarragon
  • Several grinds of pepper


Rinse the fillets and place in a shallow pan large enough to hold them in
one layer. Add the champagne, lemon juice, and enough water to just cover
the fillets. Remove the fish and bring poaching liquid to a boil. Lay the
fish back in the pan in a single layer and top with the onion slices,
capers, tarragon, and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 4 to 6
minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Fish is done when mostly
opaque but still barely transparent at the very center. Remove fish from
the liquid, along with onions, capers, and tarragon. Drain well and serve
immediately on warmed plates. This is nice with a wild rice pilaf and a
tossed green salad.
