Ingredients

Lemon Mint Tzatziki:

Directions

  1. Put the wine, water, bay leaves, parsley and of the sliced lemons into a large deep skillet and bring to a simmer.
  2. Add the salmon, skin side down. Add more water, if necessary, to cover the salmon. Cover the skillet and simmer over a low heat until the fish is just cooked through, about 8 minutes.
  3. Transfer the fish to a plate, cover it and chill it completely in the refrigerator, about 3 hours.
  4. To serve, peel the skin from the fillet and scrape away any brown flesh. Put the fish on a serving plate, garnish with scallion and the remaining lemon slices. Serve with Lemon Mint Tzatziki.
