How to Poach Gluten-Free Salmon Piccata

This naturally gluten-free dish is not only low calories and lower in fat, but also simple to prepare and deliciously tasty. The benefit of eating salmon is its high Omega-3 fat content. You may opt to serve this over a bed of gluten-free noodles or on a bed of cooked spinach.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 10 minutes

Yield: 2 servings

3/4 cup water

1/4 cup sherry

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules

1 tablespoon capers, rinsed and drained

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

1/4 teaspoon dried dill

1/4 teaspoon dried mint flakes

1 tablespoon butter

Two 5-ounce pieces wild salmon filets, thawed and skin removed

  1. Place the water, sherry, lemon juice, bouillon granules, capers, salt, pepper, parsley flakes, dill, mint, and butter in a medium skillet over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil.

  2. Reduce the heat to medium and add the salmon. Cover the skillet and simmer the filets for 7 to 8 minutes (cook 10 minutes per inch of thickness at the thickest part) or until the fish flakes easily with a fork. (You don’t need to turn the fish over during cooking.)

  3. Remove the fish from the skillet with a wide spatula to prevent the salmon from breaking apart. Discard the remaining liquid in the pan.
