Microwave-poached salmon with lemon-dill sauce
uncooked farmed salmon fillet(s) with or without skin
1¼ pound(s), skinless, cut into 4 pieces
fresh lemon juice
¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped
1 tsp, grated
- Spray a 2-quart microwavable dish with a lid with nonstick spray. Add the salmon and sprinkle with the lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Cover the dish with the lid and microwave on High until the fish is just opaque in the center, 5 - 6 minutes, then let stand with the lid on for 1 minute. Drain the liquid from the fish into a cup. Cover the fish to keep it warm.
- Meanwhile, mix the flour with about 1⁄4 cup of the milk to a smooth paste in a medium saucepan. Stir in the remaining milk, the dill, lemon zest, and coriander. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture bubbles and thickens about 3 minutes. Stir in the fish liquid and reheat. Serve the salmon with the sauce. Yields 1 piece salmon with generous 1⁄4 cup sauce per serving.
