Recipe type: Entree
Serves: 1
  • ½ lb salmon fillet, skin removed
  • salt, pepper
  • parsley stems
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ¼ cup water
  • lemon, to serve with the salmon
  1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Place a layer of onions on the bottom of a skillet. Top with the parsley stems. Add the garlic cloves, the white wine and water.
  3. Place the fish on top of the onions and parsley. The liquid should barely be touching the fish.
  4. Bring the liquid to a boil and then reduce to a simmer.
  5. Cook for about 5 minutes, flip the fish over very gently and cook for another 5 minutes or so. It really depends on the size and thickness of your fillets. The temperature of the fish should be 130 degrees.
