Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

For the poaching liquid:

Combine all poaching liquid ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring the poaching liquid to a very low simmer and cook 30 minutes. Skim the top as needed to remove any foam from the surface. Lay some cheesecloth over the top of the poaching liquid, making a bed for the fillets. Submerge salmon in poaching liquid and cook for 8 to 10 minutes.

For the cucumber sauce:

1 English cucumber, unpeeled, roughly chopped

Fronds from 1 bunch dill (about 1 cup)

1/2 small red onion

2 large lemons, juiced

1/3 cup mayonnaise

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/3 cup yogurt

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine first four ingredients in a blender and puree. Gradually blend in mayonnaise, oil and yogurt and then season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

Serve poached salmon with side of sauce.
