Poached Alaskan Salmon Piccata

This is a delicious, creative way to serve salmon. You can serve the salmon on a bed of cooked noodles or on its own with a side of vegetables.


  • 0.5 cup water
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 0.125 teaspoon chicken broth granules
  • 2 (4 ounce) salmon fillets
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon capers
  • 0 ground black pepper
  • 0.5 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Bring water and lemon juice to a boil in medium-sized skillet. Stir in chicken granules.

Reduce heat to a simmer and place salmon fillets in pan. Cover and simmer over low heat, 10 minutes per inch of thickness, measured at thickest part; or until fish flakes when tested with a fork. Remove salmon from pan; keep salmon warm.

Boil remaining liquid in the skillet until it is reduced to approximately 1/4 cup. Whisk in butter and stir in capers. Spoon sauce over fish. Season with pepper and sprinkle with parsley.
