Poached Salmon with Mustard Sauce Recipe


1 1/2 lbs. salmon fillet, cut in 4 pieces, skinned and deboned
2 T. nonfat plain yogurt or sour cream
1 T. mayonnaise
1 t. dijon-style mustard
1/2 t. minced or grated fresh ginger
1/4 t. honey or sugar
Minced fresh chives or parsley (for garnish)


In a small bowl combine yogurt, mayonnaise, mustard, ginger, and honey. Set aside while fish cooks. Rinse salmon. Bring about 2 inches of water to a boil in a large pan. Add fish and reduce heat so water just simmers.

Simmer until fish is just slightly translucent in center, 8 – 10 minutes for fish 1 inch thick. Carefully remove fish from the pan, let drain and gently pat dry. Set fish on plates and spoon sauce over. Garnish with minced chives or parsley. Makes 4 servings.
